Through a Child's Eyes

Today there was a pizza party at work as our students are going through there stressful time. As the team leader I volunteered to bring the pizza, even though it's my day off.

As it was my day off I had to bring Lucas in with me and he was quite looking forward to going to Mommy's work. It is amazing how much fun he had there. A place where I go and get stressed and work hard, he loved. (Don't get me wrong I do love my job, but it still is that - a job) He sharpened every pencil at my desk with an automatic pencil sharpener. Then he proceed to sharpen everyone else's pencils. Then he colored with highlighters. Then he played with some various gifts students have given me. He didn't want to leave. Although I convinced him, by telling him we were going to find Pop (who works in the same building as me). He loved riding the elevators, leaving a note for Pop, playing on the couch's in the lounge, getting snacks at the store. Then as we were leaving he saw Pop teaching a class, so went in to see him. Like I said he enjoyed himself as much as if we had gone to the library or played outside.

I guess it makes me appreciate work a little more...

Till Tomorrow

One of the things I love most about Lucas is that he is SO observant! The fact that he's so keen to notice every intricate detail of what he sees, hears, touches or tastes makes everywhere he goes such an exciting experience for him. Plus his desire to help and be a active part of tasks and activities makes it so easy to turn what we consider to be a boring place (work) into an afternoon of fun!
You have such a terrific kid and I think he's going to love being Mommy and Daddy's helper with his new baby brother.
