A Not So Turkish Life

Take a Boy to Mud

It’s easy to forget how little a boy he still is when you follow our toddler boy around. From putting his shoes on himself to pouring his own glass of juice, the concept of independence and the belief in his own ability has entered every realm of M’s life. It is a fascinating privilege to have this inside look at a human being carving the shape of the shell they’ll inhabit and much of the time I do try to stand back and let him push his limits, to allow him the freedom to learn. It is nice though to have reminders that your input is important, and that he knows it and enjoys it and benefits from the lesson he learns. Even if that is nothing more than soil + water = mud.
