Gratitude journal: Firsts

Tonight I am grateful for the many firsts that a child can bring to a parent’s life. As adults, the number of firsts that we experience tend to diminish as we get older, but if you have a child, firsts happen on an almost regular basis.

Today my daughter pedaled a tricycle on her own for the first time, and I suspect that it was more thrilling for me than the first time I pedaled a tricycle by myself.

I honestly had no idea that parenting would be so fun.
