One night my six year old son and I were debriefing his day after his bedtime story. He wanted me to tell him about my day before he told me about his. I listed off everything I’d done that day at work, including my Te Reo lesson. He excitedly said, “I’m learning Te Reo too!” He was so excited to hear that I was learning, just like him. The divide between adult and six year old shrank a little in that moment, and sharing that experience helped us to connect with each other.
