Seeing Life Through the Eyes of a Two-Year-Old

Today, I’m not cooking Sunday dinner. Most everyone had plans, and my father encouraged me to take a break from cooking. I’m not sure exactly what I’ll do today, but I plan to enjoy myself. I’m sure at some point, I’ll see that special two-year-old, who brings so much delight to my life. I thought about how he views the world.

There are so many things that make my grandson laugh. At two, he knows I’m there, but he still delights when I cover my face and then call out, “Where’s Grandma?”

Chasing him through the house saying, “I’m gonna get you.”

Tickling. Obvious, I know. He loves it. He’s two.

Pulling him across the floor by his ankles.

Stickers.

Playing.

Sometimes we should stop and look at the world like a two-year-old. Enjoy the moment. Quit obsessing over what we need to do. Put away our smart phones. Turn off the television. Experience the world. And enjoy the company of friends and family.
