I kissed a booboo

Booboos are inevitable.

You’ve done the great parenting work of protection and freedom that allows for some risk. But you are also right there as a safety net or emergency crew.

The gift of being invited (or at least allowed) to tend to your child’s hurt is priceless. Every little owie tended to is an investment in a lifetime of caring for each other. You’ve done a great job of noticing the pain, coming alongside, comforting, and sending back out – this is the work of healing.
