My son is on the move. He’s constantly crawling from one spot to another trying to understand the world around him. He loves being outside and looking at everything. When he’s sitting in his car seat he watches out the window as the city goes by. He often talks to himself and us in his baby gibberish as if he’s telling a story about what he sees.
I watch him taking everything in and wonder what he thinks about as he watches the world go by. Is he excited by what he sees or does he fear the world around him? Is he ready to explore the unknown and question everything so he can learn? I want to help him with anything I can so he doesn’t grow fearful of the world around him. I want him to always look at the world as his playground. I want him to keep that youthful wonderment even as he reaches his teen years and beyond. Living in awe of what the world has to offer is the best way to learn who you are and how you fit into this crazy place we call earth.
