Amelia makes me laugh so much these days. She’s got youth and vivacity and so much confidence it’s hilarious. Sometimes she’ll get too scared to try, but that’s only because she’s psyched out. If she thinks we’re not looking she goes full hog. Whereas, if she thinks we’re watching her, she’ll just stop half heartedly. This is the fine line of parenting: making sure you’re present enough to be engaged with their life (and also make sure they’re safe), but not so overbearing you become a detriment to their living. Lately I have been practicing some breathing exercises and letting the anger exist so I can then breathe it away.
