I observe my son. I see how hard he works to try to stand without hanging on to anything; a precursor to walking.

And then I think about how we all learned how to walk (unless we had some serious illness or disability), which in turn reminds me that no matter where we are in our lives right now, how deflated we might feel at times, we did at one time in our lives have enough drive and determination to reach an important goal that took quite a while to get to.

So if we could do it once before, we can do it again.

That's such a simple, yet profound lesson. And Luca is so yummy.

From Jai Hari in LA: Go Luca, go Luca! I was once in a room where Guru Dev Singh said that learning to walk is one of the hardest things we will ever do in the human experience & that parents should never put their child into a "walker" or any type of training-wheels-for-learning-to-walk type vehicle during this critical developmental phase. He said a child who learns to walk on his own without the aid of one of these gagets is left with immense self esteem & the experience of serious self accomplishment which will serve & motivate him all of his life.
