Toolbox as Metaphor

This Christmas we are giving our 2 1/2 year old daughter a child’s toolbox and toolbelt.  She enjoyed playing with one at a recent birthday party and the idea stuck with me.  It sort of hit me over the head today while talking with David that as parents, we are trying to provide E with the tools she will need to be happy, content and successful in life.  That solving problems requires knowing what tools to look for and where to find them.  Well, here is an actual toolbox and belt to start with.  As she grows and learns from others in her village, it will be OUR job to always make sure that the box is big enough.
