This morning at breakfast, Bear had a fuzzy in her hair. I pulled it out and showed her. She then used her eggy little hands to straighten her hair like I did, giggling the whole time. I wiped her hair off with a wet wipe, and she "fixed" her hair with a huge grin. I let her laugh, and laughed with her as I just wiped off her hands so she could tidy her mane without leaving egg remains on her head.
This is parenthood, not making a big deal of the little things like sticky hands. Is it easy? Nope. But when your kiddo is punchy and trying to help you out, it's okay if things get messy. Your little one is learning big people things from you - not just how to do chores, but flexibility, grace, and lightheartedness.
