Everybody see’s the world differently.
Some people see the glass half empty while other’s see the same glass, half full.
But children, their view of the world can be completely independent to themselves…
Whilst on a shopping trip with my young son to B&Q (a DIY store), he really made me laugh!
Son: Mummy can I have a new wardrobe in my room?
I’m surprised, I’ve not long done up his bedroom.
Mummy: Why? What’s wrong with your wardrobe?
Son: It’s ok… but it’s hard to find things in there.
I realise there’s an easier option than buying new furniture.
Mummy: You know it’ll be easier to find things if you keep your wardrobe tidy?
Son: It’s hard to tidy up all the time though!
I know that feeling!
Mummy: But if you help me then we can keep it tidy together.
He doesn’t seem impressed with my idea!
Son: But mummy, I’ve found the perfect wardrobe where I’ll be able to find EVERYTHING!
OK, I decide to give him a chance…
Mummy: Let’s have a look at this wardrobe then we can decide.
I lead him to the bedroom section where he looks at one wardrobe after the other.
Son: No… No… Nope… The one I saw earlier was much better. Come on, I’ll show you.
I follow him through the aisles until I see his little eyes light up.
Son: Look Mummy – it’s perfect!
I see what he’s pointing to and try really hard not to laugh.
Mummy: That’s not a wardrobe… It’s a shower enclosure!
He doesn’t seem disheartened.
Son: That’s ok. Daddy can build some shelves in it. AND I don’t even have to open the doors to see all the way around it!
