The theme in the Gallery this week is Eyes.
It immediately made me think of this photo that I used in a post a while back. I can’t even remember which post it is now but one comment on it has stuck with me every since:
Life seen through the eyes of your child is like seeing life all over again.
It is completely true. Z is completely fascinated with all that he sees. Everything is new and wonderful and is a brand new adventure.
We are usually always in a rush. Isn’t everybody? We are rushing to be on time, or to get there slightly early for once or rushing because we are late. Little Z usually puts an absolute stop to the rushing by declaring “Look! Wow…nice”, or words to that effect.
Like the time he made me drop everything just to point out that Alexander Meerlov was on TV
Or like this morning when he made me stop trying to strap him into his car seat to make me look at the “birdie” that was perched in the tree merrily chirping.
Or like the time when he was utterly shocked and amazed that the washing machine had, in fact, broken!
Or how he just watched the water during a trip to the lakes in complete silence. (For about 30 seconds)
