One thing I have learned from this experience is that children make you see things from a completely different perspective. For example, get down on your hands and knees right now and look around.
Do you see Christmas presents you can gum until the wrapping paper dissolves?
A tiny section of a power cord sticking out from behind the TV stand that can give you a nice little ZING?
Small pieces of something unidentifiable to shove in your mouth as fast as you can?
And LOOK! Is that a hard wooden piece of furniture for you to smack your head on at least twice before mom rescues you?
That's one way your perspective changes as a parent. In another sense, all things old become new again. The holiday season this year has been SO MUCH FUN because of Baby Munchkin. For instance:
|Who knew Christmas trees were so amazing?|
|And did you know Santa is a FAKE!?!|
|SEE!! THIS BEARD IS TOTALLY SYNTHETIC!!|
I can't wait for Christmas morning!
