The art of learning balance while teaching it as well;
like learning how to read and write while you teach someone to spell.
It’s the path of every parent as their children swiftly grow;
it’s learning that there’s more to life than “going with the flow.”
The puzzle they call “parenting” and all that it entails
is so much more than cuddling; it’s learning from what fails.
But mostly there’s the wonderment of their evolving mind;
its the guidance through life’s mazes to see what they will find.
And in the end you’ll stand back and wonder at what grew;
guided to adulthood by the little that you knew.
