The minds of children are almost never at rest. Sometimes you can literally see the gears moving in their little brains! Their minds are constantly in motion. Have you ever watched a preschooler sleep during nap time? If not, I highly recocommend it! You can see their little eyes dancing as they dream. It's amazing.
Recently a man came into my office while I was talking to one of our 3 year olds. She didn't know him and was very reserved. Despite desperate attempts to make conversation with "Suzy" but she wouldn't budge. However, the moment he left she was incredibly talkative....about him! As I watched her observe him I could tell her mind was going a mile a minute.
As busy adults we sometimes get so caught up with our own agenda's and well...life that we forget to take the time to slow down and enjoy those happy moments when we can catch a glimpse into our future through the eyes of our children!
