You are their haven. Their harbor. Their sanctuary, their peace. You are comfort. Deep breaths. Hugs and back rubs. You're a resting place, a nightmare chaser, a healer. You are the calm within their storm. You are their mother.
To your child, you are safety. You are security. You are where (out of anyone or any place), they can come undone. Where they can let it all out, let it all go. Where they meltdown, break down, scream, cry, push.
Where they can say—"I AM NOT OKAY!"
Where they can totally lose it. Without judgment or fear or shame.
Because they know you'll listen. They know you'll hear them. That you will help piece the mess back together.
They transition seamlessly for indoor play.
