One child is loud, physical and cuddly.
One child is independent and stubborn.
And this child is a thinker, very determined and a "prefer to participate in activities by myself" kind of kid.
Give him a paddle and a canoe and he can keep himself happy and occupied for hours.
Just leave him alone and let him figure things out himself.
And he will.
Without asking for any help.
Without whining and complaining.
He just sets his mind to it.
And does it.
I admire his determination.
But I am sure I have told you that a gazillion times before.
I also admire his canoeing skills because I cant get into one without tipping and making a complete fool of myself.
