Toy Boat

One of our kids' favorite books is "Toy Boat", and we have named our sailboat after this book. In the book, it talks about the relationship between the boy and the toy boat. How the toy boat loved to go out and explore the world when the boy lost the string to the boat, yet loved to return back home to its owner, the boy. This is a metaphor of our children's lives. We are slowly expanding their safety net, how far they can go out and explore. They know mommy and daddy will always be here when they return.
