Five Minutes with a Child...Enlightenment

I read three books
Got three Skittles
I read at home
I get stickers
Get a bunch
I get a toy

MS E made a volcano
She dug a hole 
with her hammer
Poured stuff in
Where are the frogs?
The volcano blew up
MS E put a can in
We put dinosaurs all around
but when she poured the liquid
the pterodactyl died
I kissed Summer all day
Ms E can't hear

She's old
And she's nice
I was good today
Played outside twice
All the dinosaurs died
I really like Olivia
My pictures, Z's story with enlightenment for the day and foolishness because I should listen more.

Kids will do so very much for Skittles, won't they? Ha, so would I. I love, love, love them. I enjoyed this poem and your photos!

He packed a lot of information in there didn't he? Typing blind here so it will be interesting to see what happens.

I like this very much! You listen enough to catch the rhythm, the attention span, the equality of gain and loss ... when we look inside foolishness, at times we find the wisdom of which you speak.

I love these days with children - you never know what they are going to say. I loved this poem/story and the photos are just delightful. Just a feel good post that enlightened my day. Thanks a bunch, eh.

Sandra said...

great photos, i wish i had listened more when mine were this age.. a day late and a dollar short not... that was some running commentary he told you

We all should see the world with the simplicity and interest of a child. Such a fun day.

This one must go in your book, in the chapter: Just Kid-ding. That's the title of the chapter. Yes, I'm bossy.

This little guy is so cute!!!

Boys and a pond...a great combination, Gail.

Z's wisdom and lecture are so great. Love the photos of a boy in a perfect locale for reflection, literally and figuratively.

I just love how little kids can suspend reality. Their world is so exciting!

Yep, to love in a child's world is to live life, especially when we see through their eyes. He's so adorable, and surely makes life a blessing. I like your little signs all about too. Great place out there for young and old imaginations to flourish!
