It never ceases to amaze me how intelligent children are. They deserve way more credit than they're given. Their ability to soak up knowledge is incredible. It really makes you realize that you have to be careful of what you say around your kids.
Day after day, it seems my daughter is always learning something new. Some things that she rambles on about I remember having told her about just that day or the day before, but some things just come out of the blue, leaving me to wonder where she picked them up? A TV show? A passing conversation?
I feel so lucky to be able to watch my children grow and observe, learn and absorb. Everything in life is at their fingertips and I wholeheartedly believe in their ability to achieve anything they put their minds to. Quite often I find myself wishing I could look at the world with such love and innocence. That I could absorb new information in the blink of an eye. That I could look at each new experience with awe and amazement. But then I think to myself... well what's stopping me?
