Tonight during our “down” before tucking the kids into bed, we had some music playing.
My littlest one, whom will be 2 in March, was dancing, having a good old time and minding her own business when all of a sudden she stopped and had a very complex look on her face. She didn’t say anything and didn’t do anything at first, she just stood there looking at the ground.
I didn’t say anything to her, I just sat back and watched her to see what had her concentrating so deeply. She continued to dance but this time with a bit more enthusiasm and larger moves. Her eyes kept going back and forth from her hands to the floor. And that’s when I realized she had discovered her shadow.
She wasn’t too sure if she actually liked this shadow thing and tried her hardest to see what “it” could do…
>>>she walked fast
>>>she walked slow
>>>she walked forward and backwards
>>>she jumped and turned in circles
And my favorite…
>>>she got down on her hands and knees and tried to crawl and catch it
It was honestly the cutest thing I have seen her do, and she does some entertaining things!
Motherhood is a tough job at times, but the rewards, like tonight’s, are all WORTH it!
