my dreamer boy
It tickles your heart when you catch your little one in deep thought. Pondering the breeze, the birds, the afternoon light. The change that you see in their eyes. The world opening up to them. This is such an adorable time.
Last Friday night we stumbled upon a opening at the local Art Exchange in South Broken Hill. We had already been out for an early dinner. The sun had just gone down. Artists in residence were displaying their most recent work. I impulsively put a red sticker next to one. There were 2 older boys, brothers and they were so sweet in playing with Che Che. Oh the joy of staying up late and running around in the moonlight. I spotted Che looking at the boys who were doing push-ups on the concrete outside. In the early hours of Saturday morning after the ritualised breast feed, I spotted him in the lounge room by himself trying this new manoeuvre.
Bigger boys have a big impression on him.
