Welcome to Conversation with Katherine and my Podcast Foundational Understanding-Life's Training Wheels

In my previous podcast I used the phrase, Foundational Understanding.  I would like to explain what I mean.  I enjoy watching toddlers.  I am always amused and delighted in watching how they begin to discover the physical world.  The act of standing and seating is a magical experience for them.  When they discover their legs move them, I see the look of how excited they are with the simple act of movement and the wondrous expression on their faces.  When a toddler is given a pot with a spoon and can make noise for the first time, the noise may be an irritation to the adults in their life but it is magic to them.

The toddler does not know the "why" of their behavior.  Their ability to understand the subtle nuances of profound conceptual frameworks is missing.  their vocabulary is with simple words, me, mom, daddy.  the movements that I observed make me smile because of the human ability to have wonder in the simple.
