Hello everyone, I'm Dani from Dani's Daily Drop and Golden Tears of Joy. I'm a mom of two, a two-year old and a 5 month old, and I'm busy with life and the rest of the time I'm blogging. (danisdailydrop.blogspot.com and goldentearsofjoy.blogspot.com)
This is my two-year-old. I call him Mr. Grins at the Drop. This day in particular was sunny enough that I didn't want to stay inside, but chilly/windy enough that I put a hat on the kid to keep his ears from turning red. We went down the street to this park where Mr. Grins enjoyed himself on this slope of grass next to the playground. The playground didn't seem to catch his fancy at all. He was too interested in the beauty of nature. It was so joyful to watch him, in his childlike fantasy, bask in the green around him. He loved the feeling of going up and down the hill. He would throw his little ball and watch it roll down, then turn and slide down on his tummy, feet first, until he got to the bottom. What a careful little kid. He was also mesmerized by the pine cones that lay around.
I went to the bottom of the slope and looked up at him from the grass and just loved the way he looked with the big sky above him so I snapped some photos. The photo seems to really show how big the world is to a child, and how beautiful it can be. The playground toys were painted with graffiti and looked dreadful...no wonder he didn't take interest. The sky was so blue, the grass, so green, and there's just so much out there to discover! I'm so excited for the warmer weather greeting us! It will be so fun to follow my toddler's adventures!
