Development: A realization as she was looking at…hinges?

She was looking at, I’m guessing, the hinges on our french doors…sorry. “Freedom Doors,” leading into the dining room.

I’ve been trying to imagine what it’s like as she figures stuff out. And it occurred to me, as I was talking with her, that she has no context. For anything.

She knows bottles, mom, dad, diaper change, bath…she’s learning the context for that kind of stuff.

But everything else on the planet? Not a clue.

And it’s not like it was back in the dawn of history. There were no hinges. Murals. Pooh. TV. Internet. LCD displays. Cars. Bottles. Rice cereal. Hip hop. March Madness. Nerf. Carpet. And on and on and on.

It shows what amazing creatures we humans are. And what little sponges our little…sponges are.


Tell me what you're thinking...
