Wonders of the world

"There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child.  There are seven million." ~Walt Streightiff

Isn't this so true?  I remember being a kid, and how easy (in retrospect) life was.  However, I don't remember there being seven million wonders of the world.  But I am sure there were at the time.

For J#3?  I think there are EIGHT million.  And it is the simple things:  planes, water fountains, kitty cats.  

Daddy brought home a plane set from the airport on his latest trip.
Pure excitement; had to start playing ASAP.
See?  He is very serious about the playing
Water fountains.  This one is in a local mall.
 His word for water is "ga".  Oh, but wait.
That is his water for juice, milk, bath.
Anything that involves liquid.
At least he is consistent, right?  Gotta love it.
I am excited for when he can specifically identify water, juice, and milk.
But for now, at least we know he wants liquid.   

Rocks. The kid could collect rocks all day.  And, they 
aren't particularly pretty or exciting rocks.  Hmm.  Is that a boy thing?
His baby sister. 
Well, pretty sure she is one of the wonders of the world. 
But that is an entirely biased mom writing.  

Sort of a good reminder to take a second to remember the little things that make life---life.  A great life. For me they are things like a good movie, a good book, fitting into a size smaller (of anything!), watching J#3 laugh, seeing J#4 smile and a great hug from J#1. 

While we try to teach our children all about life,  our children teach us what life is all about.

How about you?  What makes your life great?
