Today I caught a glimpse of the the little boy that my toddler is growing into.
We went to a local ‘steam fair’, half expecting our toddler to be too overwhelmed to enjoy it, but to our delight he lived every minute of it. He was engaged and elated with every new experience.
i) the steam train ride (obviously, as he is obsessed with engines),
ii) warm, freshly made sugared donuts (a.k.a “pastries”)
iii) expanding his soft toy collection by virtue of his duck hooking prowess. [However, when it came to choosing a prize he took some convincing that he couldn’t have the dirty plastic duck in lieu of a plush animal. What you see is what you get, right?]
I can’t wait to share more of these moments with him.
