I had my first "I'm not doing enough, what if my kid gets behind?" moment the other day.
It actually knocked the wind out of me.
It was over a really simple small motor skill that I was surprised Nicolas couldn't figure out.
I went to bed thinking about it and got up the next day determined to help him master the skill w an activity I made for him.
Basically I realized the next day what a freak I was being.
Here I am an "expert" in Early Childhood Development/Education.
I should know better.
One if my dearest friends posts this quote on Facebook and the timing could not have been more perfect.
I really need to relax and just enjoy EVERY little moment, it's not a race and all kids develop and grow at their own pace.
And I really do know better.
I just forgot for a minute.
I'm so thankful for my "mommy tribe" who seem to know when I need to hear the exact right thing.
Oh. And he did end up mastering the motor skill. As evidenced here.
(But that's not really the point if this post)
