Wonder

Angry Kid eating some Bruxie Waffles

Angry Kid looks very content hear eating his waffle sandwich from Bruxie Gourmet Waffles.  It took some explaining on why we were eating waffle sandwiches that day.  But he loved his sandwich.  Angry Kid is getting better with eating now.  He actually tries new foods.  It is amazing how fast he is growing.  He has changed so so so much this year.

This is the 4th prompt for Reverb10′ and I’m moving a little slow so bear with me.  It also took me some time to reflect on the topic.

December 4 – Wonder.

How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?

Because I needed to better understand this topic and the meaning, I looked up the definition for the word, wonder.  I needed to grasp a hold of what it entails.

Wonder

1. a cause of astonishment or admiration : marvel ; miracle

2. the quality of exciting amazed admiration

3. rapt attention or astonishment at something awesomely mysterious or new to one’s experience; a feeling of doubt or uncertainty

I have to say that Angry Kid has cultivated a sense of wonder for me this year. He is an amazing kid.  As a 36 week premature kid who did a week in the NICU, he is thriving.  Between the ages of sixteen months to almost four years old, he had over ten febrile seizures, and has had no side effects since.

He is growing dramatically, in body and in mind.  In September, he started Kindergarten.  He is trying so hard now to learn spelling, his words, and to read.  Every new word he learns, he practices spelling it.  I’m constantly having conversations like, “mama, how do you spell….”  He is a wiz at math.  I’m amazed at the large numbers that he can add together, along with counting over 100.  He has achieved so much in just a few short months.

I can’t wait to see how he progresses in school and what he will be like when he grows up. But no, I will be hanging out and admiring what a great person he is turning into.

Are you amazed and wondered by anyone, anything, or even your own children? I have many people in my life that I admire.  I’m so blessed with great people in my life.

They grow up SO FAST!!! I need to try one of those waffle sammies! My 3.5 year old is constantly naming things that start with a certain letter now. It is amazing to listen to her!

My oldest also started kindergarten & you are right I am routinely amazed & dumbfounded by how much he has learned in such a short time.....not all good either (like the picking on the youngest) I had to write their names backward on the (what we already bought)Christmas list because he was able to see his name & then saw ZhuZhu. Luckily it came out ZZZZZ-HUH, but he figured out yoda & hot wheels.
