A perfect arrow

I was working on my laptop on the couch and Owen was in the foyer playing with his blocks when I hear:

“Mama! Look what I made! Look!”

And he was deliriously happy and pointing at the floor.

“Come see! I made an arrow!”

And I thought it would be interesting to see what he thought was an arrow. So I walked over. And damn if he really didn’t build a perfect arrow.


I told him it was an AWESOME arrow and he did a really great job building it—and he was just GIDDY with excitement. Like almost vibrating with glee.

I love that kid.
