The joys of parenting

I think one of the most wonderful things about being a Mommy is seeing the world through my children's eyes.

Colin has the most amazing view of the world.

I'll never forget a comment he made when we were at the beach in September. We were playing on the beach, and he looked up and pointed at the clouds. You know the lines that airplane exhaust leave in the sky? Well, he saw a few of those, and said, "Mommy, what is that?". I said, "An airplane made that honey" and his comment was, "Oh, the airplane scraped the sky!".

Since we're in the Holiday season, there are TONS of inflatable Santas, Frostys and every other known Christmas icon known to man, all over the city. There is a roller skating rink that we pass by daily, and it is adorned with a puffy Santa and Frosty. They are both haphazardly tied to the roof, and it never fails that one or both are lying flat or deflated. For some reason, Colin always checks their status as we drive by.

On this day, Frosty was was lying empty on the roof, and Colin asked me, "Mommy where did the air go that was inside Frosty". I said, "Well, it's out with the rest of the air". His comment was, " Oh, it went to go dance in the sky".

Funny how kids can put such an insteresting, and sometimes beautiful spin on the world.

You are right about living life through the eyes of your youngster. OneHung's favorite memory thus far is when he does something that YoungHung doesn't appreciate and YoungHung starts with the obligatory "1-2-3" counting just to let OHM know that he's on thin ice.
