TINY BLONDE CHILD
3. I'll be 4.
When are you going to be 4?
TINY BLONDE CHILD
On my next birthday.
Love this Denise:) I encouter conversations like this on most days in my profession. That is why I love my job so much, kids say it like it is, and usually in this matter of fact way.
Hilarious! And yes, the simplicity of their lives is something I strive for in some parts. It's like when I look at the world through my dog's perspective - he raises his nose to the breeze, so do I and catch the jasmine or waft of foods. He rolls in the grass and closes his eyes in the sunshine, I sit down and feel the warmth too. Sometimes life doesn't have to be any more complicated than that.
Your dog knows how to have a good time.
Thank you for sharing your morning and evening -- the first post made me smile; the second, laugh. I hope your night contains more of the same.
It's all so obvious when your're three and will be four.
yes, I recognise that logic. stunning photo.
Oh what a charming conversation! I love overhearing these kinds of snippets. Last week at the zoo a child asked the teacher if the life ring was for the polar bears if they fell in the water and looked disappointed when the teacher explained that they were pretty good swimmers.
heh. as an ex-children's bookseller, let me tell you, kids are THE best customers. lovely.
I believe it.
When you think about it from a kid's perspective adults do ask funny questions sometimes!
Yes indeed! These are great truths. What kind if flowers are those, and are they wild?
The flowers are from here on the property, but I have no idea what they are. I don't think they are wild, but I cannot be sure. I know...no help, but aren't they pretty?
Love this moment.
you reminded me that I should definitively start recording this precious disarming comments from my children, just about now!
When traveling last week (we'd been in a different place every day for 2 weeks), my youngest woke up and asked me "where am I...no, seriously where am I???". My oldest son came home yesterday extremely excited after camp to tell me that the gray wolf was no longer on the endangered list: these passionate comments are also on my to-do list to record.
Perhaps a private blog...
Denise: I used to have a blog when the kids were little in which i recorded all our field trip (at the time i was working 4 days a week and the 5th day was all for them: for field trips, to explore the outdoors, always a new place: never at home). I loved it... but then I got anxious of having all their private stuff online so I literally deleted it all from one day to the next.
Understandable. It can be disconcerting to have so much of who we are online.
How very, very sweet.
Hi, Beth. Did you shut down your blog? I can no longer get in...
The blog was shut down for a few months but is up again... it feels good to be writing again.
This brightened my day! Reminds me to be able to overhear conversations like these-- children spew out some gems sometimes!Jessica | Vixenelle
