Hey KK,

I've told you about my oldest - right? He just graduated from UC Berkeley and is a pretty smart cookie. (cute too -- and single):) He has a road map on his forehead - stitches 3 times and lots of bumps and bruises. He was a late walker but he turned out fine.

Part of the learning in this period of time is for you too - you have to get used to the fact that you can not protect him every minute of every day. These bumps and bruises hurt your heart, I know that, probably more than they hurt his head. But you will both be OK.

One of the most important things is to try and manage to make stuff OK for him. If he bumps and looks over at you, you can say, "ow - that hurt! But you're OK" and he will most likely be OK. Kids freak out when their parents freak out. Your goal is to set limits for his exploration but not to stiffle his curiosity. This is difficult and we often mess it up -- but overall I'm sure you'll be fine.

I made it through - only one more to go and he is a pretty great kid already. You can do this! Duckie is lucky to have a mom who loves him so much.
Hugs from me.
