Being sucked into a world of school has opened my eyes to me. Has changed the way I see things. It's made me look at the adventures we can experience everyday. The way his world is both so small and so big at the same time. The littlest thing can have the biggest impact in his life. Each walk to and from school we find new things to talk about, to see and to look at it. Things like the colours of front doors or cars, the number on the doors, the letters on number plates, spotting insects and bugs in the bushes, counting the flowers and pretending to be a superhero.
Each day home from school we have a snack. Trying to make this fun too. Whether it's a yoghurt "sundae" he puts together with fruit, biscuits and cereal. Or a fruit salad. Or at the moment his current favorite has been Barney bears. I like being able to offer something fun. Something yummy. And something which will not fill him up. A little treat. Not everyday. But every now and again.
Making everything you do an adventure means I appreciate all kinds of things. Like him being able to dress himself (and pretending that it's his superboots) or brushing his teeth before school. It's been a learning curve for both. New routines. New things.
I will miss this when I am back at work. But it will be yet another new adventure round the corner.
