Lately, on InstagramHolding hands with my favorite boys. 💙 Also stopping Henry from jumping into the Potomac and James stopping me from tripping, but whatever- pretending it was just because they love holding my hands. (More pictures from that random 5 minutes of summer last weekend on the blog.)A couple weeks ago a mom at the park said something to me that I keep thinking about. We were talking about raising wild adventurers in confined urban spaces and she said, “In a city full of ‘no,’ I want my son to hear ‘yes.’” Yes. To messes and mud puddles and climbing trees and gathering sticks and asking incessant questions and making noise. Yes, to risks and independence and accidents and all the bruises and cuts that come with it. Yes, even if the other moms at the park are yelling no. Love this kid and all the things he’s teaching me to say yes to every day.
