But I just have to trust that these kids know what they're doing. Watching Little Olive climb in and out of her little high chair amazes me...nobody taught her how to do that. One day, she realized we were eating pizza for dinner and clambered up there like it was her last meal on earth. (It's also funny how no one taught her that pizza was a delicious treat. Now she's obsessed with it.) Then tonight, she surprised us all by getting herself down.
I know why people hold onto their kids and worry sick about them as they grow up and do their own things. Accidents and mistakes happen all the time. Just today I saw the aftermath of a horrible motorcycle accident. It really affected me. I truly hope Little Olive never wants to ride one of those.
I just wonder how I'm going to be in 18 years when Little Olive, who won't be so little anymore, tries to do more than climb out of her "big girl high chair". It's easy to say now that I'll have to trust her...but how can I really know?
Well, if it gives me any comfort, I have an amazingly advanced child who will never do a single thing wrong. ;) We're all set to go! Bring it on, future.
