Mama Loves: Wonder in the Simplest Things

One of mama's favorite things is how Baby Whimsy finds wonder in the simplest things. Drumsticks out of wooden spoons.

  1. Isn't it a shame we lose that sense of wonder?

  2. She's gotten so big!

    This picture makes me think of how there are so many amazing-looking toys and gadgets but in the end kids always go back to the simple things :)

    1. Yes! Absolutely. At her friends birthday the room was covered in toys and the kids were playing with ribbons, boxes, and water bottles.

  19. How adorable! I love how easily little children are amazed! :)
    My cousin's car broke down when they were out of state and had to call a tow truck in a blizzard, their three year old daughter thought it was the greatest thing, she kept saying 'It's an adventure! Take my picture!' I love how they find happiness in situation we may find troubling, so wonderful!

    1. He just turned three JuJu and gives his Auntie a run for her money. I really can't believe how smart he is. He uses words like catastrophe and diagnosis and such, knows what they mean and the proper way to use them. Amazes me all the time.

  23. Ohh man, I love how her eyelashes fluttter on those precious chubby cheeks. So dang adorable! Thank you for sharing. I remember when my kids would play for hours with a box. One time Baby Girl and I constructed a desk out a box, complete with organizing pouches. She would color at thing for hours. She still (at 17) remembers that desk. She thought it was the best thing EVER!
