Make space for childlike curiosity

Danae Moore

I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with my nephews. One is 2.5 years and the other is just 3 weeks. Spending time with young kids always reminds me of the joy and wonder available to me in each moment, with just a simple change in perspective. Here's a passage from Little Labors by Rivka Galchen about this childlike curiosity.

Mysteries of taste

In her ten-word Moby-Dick board book, she above all loves the page that says CAPTAIN. She loves to find a ball in a picture, especially a ball that is green or blue. Of the six animal notecards of black and white drawings, she exhibits a strong preference for Penguin. She has not yet encountered a quantity of olives that is sufficient. When she makes a scribble on paper, the result makes her giggle. When she finds herself trapped in her crib and wants out, she calls out to me; when I enter the room, she says, “Eyes?” If we come upon a square or round of metal on the sidewalk, she wants nothing more than to stand on it, and then to go on standing there. When she sees a bottle of milk being poured out for her, she laughs. Little holds more interest than a set of stairs, or a handicap-access ramp. Always she is the first to notice the moon.
