Words to a two year old

This week I've heard myself saying to my little miss two...

Go slowly. Everything is easier when you go slowly and gently.

I'm so proud of you.

One step at a time. Just take one step at a time.

We don't need to do everything today. We have tomorrow.

You're getting better and better every day.

No chocolate at breakfast time.

I love you no matter what.

Calm yourself down. Take a big deep breath in, and now let it all out.

Sleep is good for you. Lap it up.

Drink your water. Your body gets thirsty, even when you're not.

Don't worry. We can make it better.

I've been saying all of those things a lot right now, on repeat even, and while often I tire of the sound of my voice... on reflection, it turns out most of my words to a two year old are perfect lessons and affirmations for me. Life's funny like that sometimes. Don't you think?
