A child after my own heart

Sometimes I upload my photos from the SD card and get a little "oh, the kids took my camera" surprise. Note this recent series.

This was the work of T (6). His explanation? "I was going to wear my new shoes in the woods and I wanted to remember what they looked like before they got dirty."

Okay, you know what? I totally get that. Yeah, maybe he's a bit neurotic. But I find it sweetly charming; and in no small part because in some ways he's so much like me.

  1. Reminds me of his Great Uncle. He would always check out the tread of shoes before he would decide whether he wanted them or not. Great tread - OK. Nothing special about the tread - forget them!
