Kid President’s Letter to A Person on Their First Day Here

Quite a few treasured friends and relatives in my life have had babies lately. Welcome to earth little ones!

A reader sent me this clip via email and I’m passing it along.

There are a few nuggets of wisdom in there.

“Some days your kite will fly high! Some days it’ll get stuck in the tree. The biggest mess-up..not forgiving each other’s mess ups.”

I’ll definitely revisit this idea when I have kids.

What would you want a child to know on their first day in the world?
