my child, through your eyes I see the world differently...
Jun 24, 2013
There really is something so beautiful about watching your little one experience what the world has to offer for the first time...it almost makes me tear up (ok, it makes me tear up;). The husband and I got to take Mads to Discovery Place in Charlotte for the very first time this weekend. We were reminiscing in the van on the way there about how we had chatted about taking her (before she was even born!), but we had said..."oh, but that'll be a while from now...years". Well, the time has come. Crazy...how time works. You're talking about baby before baby's even there and then...you're going on an adventure with her at 2 years old. Before we know it she'll be going off to college. No! Stop. Too much. Haha.
Anyways, I found this lovely little poem that sums up exactly what I was thinking this weekend while we were adventuring at Discovery Place with our Mads girl...
Through your eyes I see the stars so bright, the moon, and the darkness of night.
I see butterflies and flowers that dance in the breeze.
I see the wind as it blows, and the leaves fall, the newness of snow, the glory of it all.
All of this so day to day, but through your eyes it all seems new. So when life starts to get me down, and things start to give me trouble...through your eyes I'll look, my child.
For you see life like no other. -Suzanne Eichman
I always tell my husband it's like we've been granted a second childhood by being parents...and it's awesome. :)
