Reminiscing and missing my leaf gifts 😦
What I’m missing is how we bonded over what the leaf looked like, it’s color, and his 6 yr old funny, cute descriptions. This past fall it was Always a joy to hear him running with delight, leaf in hand, with plenty of hugs and kisses too.
Now I’m looking for new ways to bond with him in the evening
Do you have a winter season bonding suggestions? I’m all ears if you do 😉
Tonight we bonded over story books 🙂 Cold out so why not cuddle, right? We read often so not something new, but always a nice way to start a fun conversation with him!
Lately, he is into science books! Yeah!!! Tonight the thorny devil animal from the desert caught my interest. How cool! I just learned these little guys spit blood if threatened enough.
His 6 yr old interest peaked when I read the hydration factoid about how they catch dew drops on their body, the dew slides from anywhere on it’s body into his mouth. He said, “The tail is like his slide”. Very cool spikes this little guy has all over his body.
I ended up pressing the leaves and making a painting. He liked that I put them to use. Pictured my painting with a new fisheye ap I just downloaded.
