A couple days ago we made robot costumes. Emmett had a distinct idea how he wanted his robot costume constructed, which was different than the idea in my mind. I have to be honest, at first when he wasn't going along with my idea of how it should look I became quite irritated. Then I took a breath and listened to what he had to stay. He had a GREAT idea and we ended up making his costume just the way he wanted it (which was way better than the way I was thinking). How sad is it that I had to stop myself and actually LISTEN to my son! It's humbling to admit, but such a good reminder to myself.
