Awhile back my son got a hold of our camera. It was one of those mornings when I was just happy to have him occupied. He went around the house and took pictures of EVERYTHING. A lot of the photos were blurry or about 20 shots of the same thing. But as I scanned through them, I was taken back by how he sees the world. It made me think about the fact that he is still so small and this world is very big and can look overwhelming. Even how he sees me was a reality check. I am a giant to him, and it reminded me to get down on his level more often, especially when giving direction or teaching him.
