I’ve very recently started reading Rebel Dad: the stay-at-home dad revolution, online. It’s had very ittle activity since I started, but this absolute gem came up today. I should get this laminated and put it in my wallet. :)

slowing down to your child’s pace is incredibly difficult and incredibly rewarding. I have to consciously do it — my instinct is to rush through Target as quickly as possible, rather than to crawl inside the circular clothing racks and pretend I’m a penguin. But if I can get myself to switch viewpoint, I rarely regret it.
