Sometimes you have to let them pour their own milk.

I’m one of “those moms”. You know, the ones who cringe when their child colors outside the lines. The one who immediately washes sticky hands. Who has to build a Lego town myself so it is done properly and is up to code. Who also says if you build that stack of blocks too high it will fall.

I have a hard time letting my kids fail.

But no one learned to ride a bike without tears. No one learned to color without first coloring outside the lines.

And no one learned to pour milk without spilling it all over.

So sometimes you have to let them pour their own milk.
