Have Fun

Daughter prepared a bottle of cucumber water and placed it in the refrigerator overnight. She taped a torn fragment of spiral notebook paper to it on which she wrote “have fun.”

It was for her mother, who, motivated by the warm weather and a recent visit to the doctor, signed up for a kickboxing class, starting today, at 5:15 in the morning. It was a total surprise.

Maturation sneaks up on you. You push and push for kids to grow and develop in particular directions, and they sneak up behind your pushing, straining, parenting frame and present themselves mature in ways you weren’t even thinking about.
