About I remember reading once that every aspiring illusionist must follow three simple rules:
1. Never perform a trick before you have it perfected.
2. Never do the same trick twice in front of the same person.
3. Never reveal the secret of the trick.
Then I became a mom and learned that it’s okay when things aren’t perfected, that trying good things a second time isn’t always a bad thing, and that teaching the secrets is what parenting is all about.
