Both of my children had (almost) firsts with others today. My son peed on the potty. While he has done this before, our nanny is setting up a very good routine with him, and today it had success. My daughter rode her bike confidently under the guidance of her grandfather. Again, she did a bit with my wife, but this was all out joy and confidence. As the kids get older, there will be many more firsts under the guidance of others, and I am thankful for those others creating the space for my children to flourish. I just hope my kids will still come up to me with pride and tell me about their accomplishments.
