Day 13 -- I Spy

"I Spy" is fun even when it's the "in training" version.

Tilia: "I spy that green thing over there, " while pointing at a plant.


Jacob is catching on. Today, after a few rounds, he says, loudly, "Mama, I spy skin on a person's hand that looks like crumpled paper."
Feeling pride for such an apt description, and embarrassment over my child's snafu, I, once again, do my best to redirect, teach, improvise. As a parent, "I Try"--but I'm always in training.
I spy with my little eye

The Spy by Sandra Hochman / Poetry Magazine, 1967
