Motherhood, Art, Creative Play, and Finding Joy in Everyday Life

Simon: Waiting at the top of the stairs. Too nervous to be in the basement because the furnace is loud and rumbly. Too curious to miss out on watching Daddy do some work down there.

This photograph captures my child’s bright, inquisitive, and yet very timid nature. He wants to know what is going on and how things work, but he needs to feel secure. He was this way even as an infant. I believe these traits can serve him well through life if he can keep his curiosity strong enough, and learn to take risks when it is safe.
