we can do scary things

 
an update to yesterday's post.
 
The scary thing was not for my daughter to climb so high in this tree (can you see her?) but me allowing it and even praising her, when all I wanted to do was throw up.

  1. This is so true. I remind myself to trust them and have confidence in their abilities. But then I wonder what the EMS responder will say when I tell them what I was thinking.

  2. I know. When my kids were little, their legs were so bruised up from playing outside and hiking and adventuring. I hated taking them to the doctor, because I thought she would want to know what was going on. We have had our share of trips to the ER - but so far nothing too serious. It is hard to encourage and protect them at the same time!

  3. I know exactly how you feel - was walking home from work the other day when I heard an ambulance in the distance. All I could think was 'they've done it - they've fallen out of the trees.' Was panic-stricken the rest of the way home where I found them safe and sound! But I don't discourage them from climbing either - so tough!
