“Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.”
I got a sweet just-for-fun gift in the mail from my mom last week. It’s called My Garden Box, and it was created by the folks who own the business my mom manages in Florida. Steevenson decided he wanted to put it together for Kevin for Father’s Day. I absolutely love that kids think like that, by the way.
If flowers make Mama gasp, why wouldn’t they thrill Daddy’s heart too?
I didn’t notice it as much before I became a mom, but man am I charmed by that particular brand of innocence, time and time again, these days. So free to enjoy things as few adults can. So unaware of how truly beautiful it is, the way they flutter around, assuming the best.
I put together a short video to document the making of Kevin’s present, and their first Father’s Day together. I thought I’d share it here today because I’m guessing a lot of you are smitten with all things butterflies and bubbly baby boys, too. 🙂
Thanks again for the thoughtful/easy/fun project, Mom, and happy Thursday, friends!
