Today’s prompt on WordPress is “perspective”. Bloggers are encouraged to write or share a photo in their post that documents perspective, how we get it, what impacts it, etc. I was looking through some notes I’d made about the other blog I occasionally post to, 3 Grandchildren, 2 Grandparents, 2 Cats; and I came across this tidbit of a conversation I’d had with the 5-year-old.
Me: “Coco, please use a napkin. Don’t wipe your pizza hands on the clean seat cushion.”
Coco: “I didn’t know it was clean.”
Perspective? Yup. Kids are great for adding to it, changing it, or simply blowing it right out of the water for us. Their perspective can be as complicated as solving the maze game where you have to get the marble from one end to the other without letting it fall through the precariously positioned holes; or, it can be as uncomplicated as thinking the clean seat cushion is just as good as a napkin.
Thanks again, Coco!
