Through her eyes, all is good.
At two, she knows how to live in the moment. She exists for the now, without concern for what happened yesterday or what might come to pass tomorrow. All that really matters is how she feels now.
She is authentic. If she’s unhappy or afraid, there’s no hiding it. A fit of tears, a hug and a squeeze, and she smiles again.
She is simple. An empty box is remarkably interesting to play with. Meals need not be gourmet. Excitement need not be expensive.
She pays attention. Do not think you will get away with much for she looks and sees and listens and hears and touches and tastes and smells too. She is interested in her world and she notices stuff.
I notice these things in her.
And I take note.
And I promise myself I will be more like her.
