Morning Edition

Morning Edition

He doesn’t care about foreign policy.

He doesn’t know what the DOW Jones is.

He doesn’t read his horoscope.

He’s not concerned about the presidential election or the price of a barrel of oil, or even the 7 day forecast.

The only question that he ponders over breakfast, the only issue worth debate, the news, in his book at least, comes down to this:

“What are we going to do today?”

He his not thinking of lists that must be checked off, chores accomplished, errands that need running. He only wants to know what adventure, joy, and new discoveries are in store for him today.

Bliss.

Uh huh … name and author of that book please. I am always getting those “How to draw…” books and the kids love them.

Kate February 27, 2008 at 12:10 pm

As it should be…it’s a perspective all children should have the luxury of having first thing in the morning. A pat on the back to you Stefani, for providing them such an adventurous life!!

Oh how I miss being a kid!

Jade February 27, 2008 at 3:23 pm

Through the eyes of a child. Lovely.

Sally February 28, 2008 at 5:43 am

I’m with OMSH – what is the book?
It could distract me from all sorts of thoughts.

I love Ed Emberley. My kids get so lost in that book … and I love the stories that go with their pictures.
