Get Inside - Enjoy the View
I watch my kids in utter and total amazement. What on earth is going on inside their heads? I'd love to get inside and enjoy the view, but instead I watch from this side. Wyatt, for whatever reason, decided the dominoes I was using for Jessica's math lesson were the perfect toy. For over 9 hours he set up the dominoes and knocked them down. He moved from place to place around the house and tried them in many formations and locations. It wasn't until I shot this picture around midnight that it hit me. . . He had not put these things down for hours! He stopped to have dinner, but I could not get him to go to bed! After I took this photo he set up the entire box, here on the pedestal at the end of our family room entertainment center. He promptly knocked them all down (at 12:37 AM) and got up and went to bed. He has not touched them since. This, of course, is one of only 100 things my children have done in the past week that left me scratching my head with a huge smile on my face.
