My son is in a season of life when most of my parental energy seems to be spent on keeping him alive. There’s lots of chasing, corralling, and dragging away from certain peril, sprinkled with pulling things out of toilets and magic-erasering crayon off the walls. Oh yeah, and somewhere in there we attempt to feed, clothe, bathe, and change the kid. I love this stage, I really do. It’s wild and fun and unpredictable.  But it also makes me appreciate the rare moments when my little tornado slows down long enough for us to connect on a deeper level.
