The Wonders of Frost

I’m still amazed by the everyday things that my children see as fascinating. The mundane, the unnoticed or even the irritations in my life, which elicit gasps and wonder from them. We had one such occurrence last week. It was the weekend, and a cold one. Which meant frost. Which to me means heating on a bit higher and scraping the car when we go out. Which to Boo meant the garden looked magical and she had to get out there.

I don’t think she’s ever dressed so early (voluntarily) in her desperation to be outside exploring her wintry world.

She loved it, though she wasn’t out there for long (it was cold!), as she carefully crept around pointing out all of the plants covered in frost to me, and ‘wow, look at my trampoline, it’s all frozen!’. I do appreciate her taking the time to show me the world through her eyes, as it is often so much nicer than I see it. Thanks, Boo.

  1. It’s true, seeing the works through your children’s eyes is magical and gives you that gentle nudge to remember to enjoy the moment. I love the children’s joy at frost-my eldest had great fun riding to school this morning on the frosty grass.

  2. So sweet, sounds like she was in awe of it. We were marvelling at the frost this morning on the school run πŸ™‚ It really is the littlest most simple things that can make a small child’s day isn’t it #MagicMoments

  3. Another frosty morning here today. My kiddos have a tendency to come running downstairs shouting “snow, snow”, then go “oh it’s frost”, but two minutes later they’ve forgotten their disappointment and see the magic in it. It’s fun to watch their excitement!

  4. I love the excitement of the world through their eyes too. Trying to put on our own socks is causing a lot of excitement in this house at the moment! Reminds us not to be so jaded in our view of the world πŸ™‚

  5. What a wonderful post Jocelyn. I just love seeing the world through the little ones eyes, something rather magical about it. Adorable photo of Boo she looks so excited by those footprints – or the fact her trampoline is frozen. Just fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory

  6. You’re so right about the magic of seeing the world through our children’s eyes – having Tibbons really makes me stop and look at things anew – or stop and look at things full stop – I always used to be in such a hurry to get to where I was going I wouldn’t take the time to absorb my surroundings! A lovely post, and I hope neither you nor Boo got too cold out there!
