"Did you see what I did, mom? I discovered a drawer full of shoes, emptied it all out, and then put them back in. What an accomplishment. That was the first time I've ever found a drawer full of shoes. And I took them all out and put them all in, all by myself. I'm so great. Aren't you proud of me? I wonder what else I'm going to find today."
Ah, life's little wonders. Sometimes people ask me what I do all day, since I'm a stay at home mom. They ask if I ever get bored being at home. How could I be bored when I get to witness my kids discover, learn and experience things for the first time. So today, I watched my son empty a drawer and fill it up again. It might sound boring. But I also witnessed the joy and sense of accomplishment on his face. I wouldn't trade that for anything in the world.
