The Gift of Self-Forgetfulness

I have landed on a wonderful gift idea for the children in my life.

I have decided to let them pretend – to let them be cute – to let them smile, sing, dance, eat, laugh, build, read, draw, tell stories and put on shows without (drumroll . . . . WITHOUT TAKING THEIR PICTURE!!! 

Not only that, but I will add to that “package” the gift of NOT making a constant commentary on the above, NOR will I (in their hearing) report in hyperbolic terms their every brilliant thought, word, action, attitude and etc. etc. etc.

I am determined (God help me!) to give them the gift of self-forgetfulness.


So: Obviously, I have taken pictures. But do you notice? The children are not aware.

And THAT is the “gift.”
