Looks Like IV

Observations from my four-year-old:

This soup looks like a river to me.

Hey!  These look like a convoy!

This looks like a tornado cup!

This look like the lids to Daddy's beer!

Arlo: “I made this puppet at school! I glued on his eyes and his hair.” Me: “This is great! Can you make him talk? Arlo: “No. He’s just a paper bag.”

One of Arlo’s last projects before leaving Madison’s Preschool Of The Arts. Thanks Kelly!

I suspect this fourth installment of Looks Like will be the final one.  My as-of-yesterday five-year-old doesn’t make a lot of these observations anymore; he’s too busy saying things like “As you see …. ” and “As I told you already … “.  Last night when walking home from dinner he remarked upon the holiday lights next door and said “I love those blue lights.  They make my heart feel decorated.”  I know what you mean, kid.

When I think about Arlo being five, I’m filled more with excitement for his future than nostalgia for his past.  It might be because I’m still in the baby and toddling years with Farrah Star but I think it’s because I’ve had the gift of being home with him, of being his Constant in every conceivable way.  I attended Immersion Parenthood and became fluent in Arlo.  Now I can go anywhere he takes me.

Looks like fun to me.
