I’ve got this

Recently, our eight month old Greta has been waking up, making a few loud cries, then falling back to sleep again. Once in a while, I successfully catch a glimpse of what this looks like: When she wakes up, she spreads out her arms, snags her pacifier and her blanket, pops the pacifier in, holds the blanket closely to her, takes in a deep sigh, then falls back to sleep. It is as if she says, “Yikes! Then, I’ve got this!”
What if that could be our response every time something feels overwhelming? “Yikes! I’ve got this!”
