|Little jump? WooHOO!|
|Um, OK!! Mom says it's time to come home!!|
Sometimes, the differences in how men and woman parent are pretty subtle. And sometimes, they are the exact opposite of subtle. I'm so glad I wasn't there in person, I so would have freaked out, turning into an annoying, hovering helicopter mom.
I know Alex makes sure the kids are safe. I know if he isn't paying attention, one of the other dads is. And I know, when my kids come in from a dad adventure yapping a mile a minute about how much fun they had, smiles plastered across their cold rosy cheeks, it's OK that we parent differently. Better than OK, actually. Because where I might be nervous to let them try something I think is dangerous, Alex is a bit more adventurous. Kids need adventures!
