Our daughter, Emahry, loves animals. In fact, she loves anything that has to do with an animal, reminds her of an animal, or remotely resembles an animal.
One of her favorite songs is Old McDonald Had a Farm. She can’t quite sing it, but she sure does have the “E, I, E, I, O” part down. She also loves making the animal noises.
But why stop at farm animals. Sure, cows, horses, pigs, and chickens are nice animals, but Emahry is convinced that Old McDonald has monkeys and tigers, too.
For Emahry, the world is full of possibilities. It’s amazing how different the world looks through the eyes of a child. I wonder how many things would be possible for us to do if we left behind all the baggage of the world and saw things the way a child does?
Leave a comment and tell about something funny your child has done or said recently, or how they’ve helped you look at the world in a new way.
