My little man loves to skate, and he desperately wanted to learn how to do an ollie on his skateboard. So we headed out to the carpark next to our home and he practiced and practiced. He fell off, scraped his knees. Got frustrated. By the end of the session he still hadn’t nailed an it, but he certainly got close a couple of times.
I love watching how his little mind works, how he wants to learn, to succeed. It’s tough watching him fall, to see him swallow his tears, his frustration. But then there is pride when he gets up and tries again.
Parenting can be a tough gig…but sometimes when you get a glimpse of the man that your little person may become – then it’s totally worth it.
