That is exactly what my child did and I am so incredibly and unbelievably proud of him, I can learn so much from my little men. Determination with patience and a sense of knowing, the perfect combination, no self-doubt, they just know it will all work and it will be fine, and I look at them and I hate how life and knowledge and experience has literally screwed us up! Big time!!!
Can you imagine how different everything would be if we could walk into every challenge and face every beautiful opportunity with that bright knowing faith, I mean my boys still question a little, they are cautious, but they know what they want and that end goal and that excitement is what keeps it all together and that! That is just too glorious for words.
My Vaughn, well, he wants to be a youtuber. And he as watched and leant and practiced and played and been quietly observing for a long time now, patiently learning and tonight my son made one of his precious dreams come true and he uploaded his very first video, and within minutes had three views, can you imagine the thrill and excitement that little boy is feeling. Before I get a million and one emails about “bad parenting” trust me, I am watching everything very closely but there is no way in hell I was going to postpone a dream of his. Or put him off, if he had said “mom I want to be a famous daredevil, please get me a pit of cobras so I can practice, well um no. not happening. And him leaning about programing, design and eventually engineering, which is clearly where he is heading, this is actually going to be helping him, big time.
Anyway none of that is the point, the point is my son saw an ambition of his come to life tonight, and he did all the hard work to make it happen and as a mom, I would not be more proud of him. I strive for that knowing….. I want some of their uvooma matatah.
