My husband and 4yo daughter have been building an earthen oven for weeks now. It’s pretty messy work, and today she dumped a pile of sand all over the ground.
“Oops!” she called out, “Well, that’s okay. We’re a learning family, and I made a mistake, but now I learned!”
I’ve never used that exact wording, so it feels really good to hear that she’s absorbing those messages! <3
