Sometimes your kids do things that you think are not smart at all. Like standing on a frozen ‘pond’ on the way to the bus stop before school. What if the ice breaks? Wet shoes and late for the bus….
Every part of me wanted to stop him, or tell him to be careful. But I know he has been watching this ice for days now. And why not celebrate this little victory? He was so happy … so I did.
I didn’t say anything except , “awesome!”.
Then it started to crack and he jumped off. The end!
