The little things

This morning as I was driving to work I was behind or beside a firetruck (don't worry it wasn't going anywhere in a hurry!) for a few miles. When I first spotted it my heart lept and I almost said out loud, "A firetruck!"

Seeing firetrucks and many, many other things bring me so much joy these days because I know they make Lucas so happy. Lucas helps me notice the small wonders that previously wouldn't have garnered a second thought from me. Here's a list of some of them:
  • Trucks of any kind, especially back-hoes or firetrucks
  • School buses
  • Trains (huge bonus points if they are moving!)
  • Babies or any kids smaller than Lucas
  • Balloons!
  • Dogs (aka woof-woofs)
  • Kittys
  • Squirrels
  • Birds
  • Water, from small bodies like puddles to larger ones like rivers

  1. My girls love to notice all those little things too. It's so fun to have my eyes reopened to all the things I had grown to busy to notice anymore.
    I've done the same thing! I'm alone in the car and I call out-"airplane!"
    Ummmm...oops...just kidding.


Comments make my day. Thanks!
