Parenting things I do well poorly.  A deliberately incomplete list compiled late at night while watching Star Trek.

Things I do well:
  • Kneel to get at Tadpole's level when talking to her
  • Involve Tadpole in household activities like laundry and cooking
  • Give Tadpole intense focused attention
  • Give Tadpole space to explore
  • Notice when Tadpole needs some direction & help her focus
Things I do not well:
  • Easily distracted by my phone
  • Get impatient - not allow Tadpole to finish telling me something, and not leave enough time for 3-year old paced activities
  • Not facilitate or model meeting new people
