Ups and Downs

I make a LOT of parenting mistakes. Overreact about something small? For sure. Resort to raising my voice after a couple of attempts at getting someone to follow directions? You bet. Bribing children of all ages and stages to do something by promising food or toys? I am here for that.

But every once in a while, I find myself doing something that one of the parenting books would probably recommend. This time, it was the escalator.

While doing a return at the mall, Harry asked if we could pleasepleaseplease ride the escalator up and down. I found myself nodding and smiling. And so, we became “those people” at Nordstrom, riding the escalator up, then back down, and then one more cycle, because why not?!

Personal growth, people. This is personal growth.
