One of the things that has really been weighing on my heart lately is the need to allow my kids to experience life AS KIDS. So often I try to make them see things through MY eyes – the eyes of an adult. Oh, how so very wrong I’ve been!

Amen. I have a 2-year-old, too. She is very verbal, so we often get to “see” things her way because she is so good at expressing them. But I hadn’t thought about trying to REALLY see things through her eyes. Thanks for prompting me to slow down and enjoy 2-year-old innocent perspective today.

Beautiful picture! It would be so amazing to look at the world again with such wonder.

Ah, yes. Children infuse life with such magic, wonder, and awe.

That’s a great photo, by the way. She looks so genuinely happy. Her eyes are positively sparkling.
