The First Nine Minutes

Mixing up a batch of homemade vegan marshmallow fluff is an exercise in patience.

For the first nine minutes of the ten minutes it takes in the mixer, not much happens. And then, it transforms into something fluffy and delightful.

Some people may not make it past five minutes, never mind ten.

But it can be done if we stick it out and do it again.

Much like the learning that occurs at ROA. The transformational gift are for those who have the patience, perseverance and courage to stick to it no matter how hard it gets. And believe me, it gets hard. Being and ROA parent is not for the faint of heart. We give so much trust in our child no matter how chaotic their process of learning may be. But what better time for them to experiment and try things out, to fail and to try again over and over until they figure things out for themselves than now? Fair early, often, and cheaply as we always say. The stakes are less while they are young.

As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait.
