I know I feel sad and have talked about it quite in length about not working in the science field, but staying at home does have it’s advantages, I must say.

To anyone else, this wouldn’t be any big deal. But to me, it means a lot. Why, I’m not sure. Is it because girls are supposed to play with dollies and play dress up and they decidedly like building things too? Is it because they are creatively using materials for other purposes that their original purpose, or because they are developing executive function skills (because it takes patience to build these things), or because they are developing spatial awareness? I think it’s a little bit all of it.
I’m grateful to be watching them unfold firsthand, and teach them a few things while I’m here.
