We had a busy weekend filled with holiday events. We cut down our Christmas tree, attended a get together, decorated, and ended it all with a ride on the Polar Express.
As we embarked on all of these adventures (everything is an adventure when venturing out with our crew), I kept noticing Rosie, our 18 month old, with a quizzical look on her face as she took on each new extravaganza.
It got me thinking about how she might have been seeing each experience.
Cutting Down the Christmas Tree
Oh this is nice. I love to be outside. This grass is fun to roll in. Oh look! Daddy’s rolling too! Now he’s stuck under that tree and it’s falling down. I guess we should bring it home. My family is so fun.
Decorating the Tree
Wait a minute. What is that tree doing in our house? My sisters think it’s great. I guess I think it’s great too. They’re putting shiny balls on the tree. I can do that too.
Polar Express Trip
Phew! We are putting our jammies on early tonight. I’m pooped after that party we went to last night. I could use a nap. What? We are getting in the car?
Now we are getting on this thing they’re calling a train. All these people are wearing their jammies. What’s going on?
Now they’re singing. I love singing. I should show them my dance moves.
Now there are people wearing funny shoes and hats giving us hot chocolate and cookies. Could this place get any better?
Soon enough, I know Rosie will be bursting to let us know all that she is thinking. In the meantime, it’s fun to imagine what might be going through her little brain as she takes in the world around her.
