Family Friday #16

I think a picture like this nicely sums up both the experience of childhood and of parenthood. Innocent and eternally present, a child doesn't dwell on the past or wait for the future. What the moment brings--whether it's a day at the pool or just bath time--commands full attention and engagement, and what came before is dropped, and left where it lies.

A parent, of course, mostly notices the mess. And--in my case--takes a picture.

Happy weekend, everybody!
