the snake whisperer

So this is not the picture for all of you out there that are squeamish with the whole snake thing! I wanted to share, though, how proud I am of my son for doing this when he was afraid (notice the gloves). Earlier on, in his young life, he was quite timid to do so many things--- and now, more and more, he is just grabbing the bull by the horns (or the snake by the tail, rather) and just going for it. I am not saying that I would not have approved had he been a timid (read careful) guy, because if I said that, I would be saying that it was a bad thing. I don't believe it is necessarily bad, just restrictive. I am timid (not verbally) and I really have missed out on a lot of things. I hope to break that cycle with my child. More than that, I hope to convey unconditional love to them no matter the circumstance.

  1. "I hope to convey unconditional love to them no matter the circumstance."--Very well said, Rachel. Just remember that when the teenage years roll around! Seriously though, I believe it gives a child a wonderful gift if you are able to demonstrate unconditional love--love that is there no matter how many times they fail or what circumstances they may encounter. To know that your love is constant gives them the confidence to try...and that's what may ultimately lead to their success. Very important and worthwhile subject.
