You know how, sometimes, seeing the world through your child’s eyes can really change your attitude?
Recently, it was pouring rain, and I had just finished loading a cart full of groceries into the minivan. My jeans were wet, and my socks were soggy inside my soaked tennis shoes.
I took a deep breath, mentally preparing to navigate the flooded streets.
Just then, my son piped up from the third row.
“This is a good day to do the grocery shopping.”
Wasn’t he too young for sarcasm?
I asked him whether he was trying to be funny.
“No, mommy. It’s good it’s raining because if it were sunny then we’d be missing out on doing something fun.”
I didn’t mind the wet drive home nearly as much after that.
Don’t you love it when little minds give you a new perspective?
