It's not very often that I get the chance to just observe this one when he's doing his own thing. Too often there are chores to do, butts to wipe, calls to make. I get busy and it gets loud and chaotic and I miss these little moments. The other day though, I had the chance to just watch The Kid be a kid. He spent hours on the front steps, playing with his superheroes, reading comic books (OMG. How cute is that?), and even invited his sister to join him when she woke up from her nap. He's just so damn cool.
