This is a late post but it is never too late to give some birthday shine to our lovely little boy, Collin, who just turned 6!!
Thank you Collin for bringing BIG smiles and joy to our hearts, being a great co-working buddy during SIP, showing us how much you want to grow up. I love how eager you are to learn and be part of this complex world.
The other day, Collin said, “You’re doing it again… I can hear you, you’re talking about them again.” He’s been asking me to stop talking about the white people (white supremacists). After some denial, my heart sank a little bit because it reminded me (again) just how toxic this moment is and how so many of us parents are just doing our best in these unprecedented times. (and it reminded me how im not always a fun co-working buddy.)
Back to Collin, here are his six year old goals, some suggested by me of course, but he added #4 and #5.
1. Eat by myself
2. Stay calm when mad and sad
3. Learn to read a book
4. Talk clearly
5. Get Trump out of office…
