|My two precious miracles|
It’s amazing what a little love can do for your day!
My son is four and a half. He is a type A kiddo with a huge sense for right and wrong. Sometimes I call him my little policeman. “Momma, that’s not supposed to go up there. Momma, they’re trying to drive on the road, too. Momma, yesterday you told me not to say that. Why did you say that word?” There are so many cute things he says everyday to remind me, to do the right thing. To model the right thing.
Today I received an email from the director at his daycare. She said, Simon was really missing his mommy today. He needed a little extra snuggle time, which is one of the reasons why I picked the daycare center they go to, because they are cherished there. They feel love everyday.
The director followed up and said, he wanted to send you an email, and I would have blushed ear to ear if I didn’t have olive skin.
This is the letter my son typed for me on her computer:
Then the director asked him if he felt better. He said yes.
I quickly emailed back and told the director, I had just blown him a kiss all the way from work. I asked her to see if he’d caught it.
In any case, I’m thinking about the power of phobias today. Where do they come from? How do they get implanted into our giant human brains?
This question comes up from a song one of my favorite bands sings: Fear, by OneRepublic.
The lyrics go something like this…
When we were children we’d play
Out in the streets just dipped in fate
When we were children we’d say
We don’t know the meaning of
Fear, Fear, Fear
…wish I didn’t know the meaning of…
Do we get our phobias as children? Or are we born with some physiological predisposition? I’ll be researching these questions this week and I’m curious what you think. And if you have any answers I’d love to hear them…
Peace, Love and Pleasant Thoughts,
