Perceptive Ponderings

Pondering Meditation

Perceptive Pint Size Ponderings For Your Monday Amusement

One of my favorite things about being with children is the insightful, funny and innocent things they say.  We have all heard them and hopefully had a heart warming, funny or ah-ha moment inspired by the sweetness of a child

Here is something particularly perceptive, amusing or wonderful that I had the honor of being part of…

One of my kids took her first steps on my yoga mat.  Little feet pressing steadily into the ground while she carefully raised her delightful body towards the sky.  Then she took a step and another and another.  This same little child now meditates when she is mad, which seems to happen most often in light of the morning at the bus stop.  (Well, let’s face it, getting ready to go in the morning can be a trial even on the best of days.)

So, it wasn’t really a surprise when recently during a particular anxious mommy moment she gazed at me with big wise brown eyes and said, “Momma, you really need to meditate.”

About two years ago when my youngest child was 4 years old I had the lawn aerated.  She peered eagerly through gauzy white curtains watching as a man pushed his machine all over our back yard.  Standing on tip toes in complete and unusual silence, she was completely engaged in this novel activity happening right outside.

 After a few minutes she looked at me with panicked eyes and exclaimed, “Oh no mommy!  Cinnamon (our dog) pooped all over the back yard!”

I too remember the shock of seeing hundreds of dirt plugs all over our lawn when I was a small child.  I was sure, beyond a doubt that each little clod of dirt was a dog poop!

The other day we were watching TV and a commercial come on that showed a woman getting a face peel.  Instantly Violet’s eyes were glued to the screen.

With complete fascination she asked, “Why are they peeling off  her face?”

Then she thought about it and said, “Maybe it is because it will take away the wrinkles and make her face more smoother.”

Next she checks me out and looking at my face says, “Your not too wrinkly mommy.”

Smiling, I  look at her and scrunch up my face getting an instant reaction, “Mommy!  When you do that you look like you have a 10,000 wrinkles!”

“Thanks Violet…”

“Don’t worry mommy, Mamaw (this is what we call one of our grandmas) earned her wrinkles. It’s okay, she told me.”

“How did she earn her wrinkles Violet?”

“By worrying about people…”

During lunch time at the preschool where I work we were talking about having good manners.  I told the kids that my mom used to say, “mind your p’s and q’s” to remind me to use my manners.   This brought on all kinds of giggles as well as  many questions about my mom.  Our conversation ended with a question from an adorable little girl who very seriously said, “how wrinkly is your mom?”  I guess that is how kids figure out the age of us adults!

Pondering Early Morning Wake Up Calls

This morning brought us the challenge of daylight savings time.  6:30 and still snuggled in bed (at what used to be 5:30 just two short days before), I was greeted by the patter of my 6 year olds’ feet running into the room.  She stood by my bed in the dark and waited a second or two before talking to me.

 

“Momma I am just so happy to hear the birds singing outside my window.”

     Wow, I thought what a wonderful greeting for a Monday morning.

     Then, after a second or two…

“That means we can grow food soon, to eat!”
