This weekend, my husband and daughter went camping and I was able to spend 2 whole days with just my son. It surprised me how I was able to connect with him in a way that is not usually possible when we are together as a family. I was able to see what he really wanted to do when the choice was all his. I came to understand his love of guns, swords, and robots, of which I had previously been somewhat unappreciative. I was also able to focus on his quirks and characteristics – to fully realize those unique traits that exhibit themselves every day but often get glossed over with the business of the day.
