Perspective

{ part of five minute friday @ the Gypsy Mamma }

~

one of my favorite games to play with zuzu is ‘exploring the house’

i let her crawl, babygate-free, all around the house and i crawl after her. we stop to look at very interesting carpet fuzzes, very interesting furniture that can be pulled up on, very interesting kitty-cats.

i let her choose which rooms to go into. now we will explore mommy and daddy’s room, the guest room, oh and the most fun, zuzu’s room!

its fun to get down and look at things from her perspective.

so interested in the smallest things, the tiny minutia she can pick up with her pinchy fingers

(her pinchy fingers: thumb and index. she also uses these to pinch! especially when she’s trying to pick up mommy’s tattoo)

before we had zuzu, i wasn’t sure if i wanted a girl. the idea of having a teenage daughter intimidates me. the hormones! oh my! i think of my teenage self. yikes.

we’ll have different perspectives on things, sometimes, maybe a lot of times. i pray that as a parent God will help me to see her side of things–to be a mom of course not just a buddy, but still hear her side of things, try to understand her perspective.Β  i want to parent with Grace

  1. What a beautiful post! I think we can learn so much about life by getting down to our children's level and looking at things from their innocent, inquisitive perspective. πŸ™‚
