If you look really deep into a child's eyes, you can see the innocence and love. I see the beauty of this innocence and the raw love behind it. There is nothing to interfere with its expression or reveal. A true beauty that I have only seen in my own child's eyes. If only I could put it in a bottle and save it forever.

My 5.5 year old is figuring out death... In the past the wooden pirates would fall off the ship sailing through the playroom on the broken sea and fall to their death only to pop back up and find treasure on a nearby island. Now, he knows... He has realized that life has an ending albeit unknown. Tonight he said to me, "Mommy, I want you to be a kid for real" and I said, really? Why? "Because then you would live as long as I will".... My heart is touched again like no other time and I am again amazed at life, love and being present every minute.
