One of the best things about having kids is that they make you look at the world in a whole new way. Kids have a completely different perspective on the world than adults do.

Sometimes the things that they see are scary, like the way that we see a spider on the ceiling . . .

 

. . . compared to the way that they do.

 

 

And that closet door that you left open a crack?

 

They see it as a portal to the monster world.

 

But sometimes the things that kids see are wondrous and beautiful and imaginative, like the space under the kitchen table . . .

 

. . . that becomes a train tunnel at a moment’s notice . . .

 

. . . or that peeling bathroom ceiling that you’ve been meaning to fix . . .

 

. . . but now you can’t because you don’t want to paint over the happy whale . . .

 

. . . or the way that you see yourself . . .

 

. . . compared to the way that your children see you. They see the real you and you are amazing.
