There’s something fascinating about seeing the world through a kid’s eyes. Every morning on the way to daycare, we pass by a field with cows and horses in it. For the past few months as E’s vocabulary and language have exploded, she almost always yells out “moooo” or “nay nay”. Today, I took real notice of it and just wanted to pull over to the side of the road and let her enjoy it.
Sometimes us adults get so busy and look at where we are going that we don’t appreciate where we are. I am really, really bad at this myself sometimes. It’s so funny how we go to zoos and farms as kids, stop going in our teen years and early adulthood but return when we have kids of our own.
So today, take a little time out of your day and smell the roses…or at least take out your earphones to listen to the world.
