The lion, the cow, and a lesson in resilience

The lion, the cow, and a lesson in resilience

Once upon a time, I missed the parenting memo.

The one that said kids know what they want. Until the moment that they don’t. The one that explains the fine nuances of raising children, and how sometimes parents need to stop struggling and start being flexible to create win/win situations.

When my kids were little, they were going to be cows for Halloween one year. That is, until Halloween morning arrived.
