every day with parenting is a fresh start to get it right or a fresh start to try something new. It's an experiment. It's like a lifelong experiment in the way. And yes, you can follow the books and I do. And I was definitely someone who, when my first with little I was very much prepared the path for my child. I was like, You know, oh, she's napping. So everyone be quiet, you know what I mean? I guess it's not until I had my third that I learned to prepare my child for the path instead of preparing the path for my child. And that is something that I heard once. And it's one of those little parenting things that has really stuck with me. Of course, it's gonna be hard, of course, you know, and it's I feel the same way about resilience that I do about gratitude. You can't tell your child to be resilient. That's so condescending. Be resilient, like you be resilient. Why are you telling? You know it's why are you telling me that? But you can point out to them. You know what's happening right now is that you are rising to a really tough occasion. And I am seeing something in you that is, I hope you're really feeling proud of because this is not easy and you're doing it.
