I do not know what it means to be in trouble for "talking out-of-turn" because you always value what I say (and when and how) I choose to say it. I always feel like an important family member.
You recognized my innate desire to learn . . . born helpless, I longed to master my world little-by-little so I feel more in control of my life. But in doing so, I do not need you to define everything for me . . . if I think pumpkins look splendid in purple crayon, let me make that choice.
There is no danger in taking my own sweet time! I've plenty of it and so do you.
Please embrace my descriptions, ramblings, creations - I put my soul into these things. When my Lego building topples - it truly does break my heart at that moment. When I accidentally lose or pop my balloon . . . it's as if I've lost or hurt a precious friend! My heart is still so tender and what's novel in your world may be priceless in mine. Thank you for validating me at these moments.
When I inconvenience (or offend) you, please do not take your love away because you are like a god in my eyes! You can crush my spirit with an overly-condemning look or tone . . . I do not mean to push you to that point. See, you are the lens I use to bring my world into focus; the clearer you are, the more clearly I see truth in this world. Might your purpose be to redefine our family heritage and guide your child(ren) toward a more empowered/enlightened childhood than what you experienced? Or perhaps you are just meant to keep the wonderful things flowing down your family line? What a gift these things are - you've no idea how you are impacting my life!
Your good choices empower me - with tools, with doors to walk through, with good company.
