i love to watch bonzo when he's playing – or just being – and he doesn't know i'm watching him* because he's so blissfully immersed in his own world.
sometimes he's full of stuff to say and songs to sing to himself and other times he's still and quiet – but he's always so completely in the moment that i just can't help but watch from a distance in absolute admiration and adoration.
it's super important time for both of us, i know.
but sometimes i catch myself wanting to join him while he's playing so contently or sit next to him and soak in some quiet time with him when he's just still and reflective – it's just so tempting to want to be in his little world with him while he's so in it himself.
but i know it would snap him back into his head and out of the moment and i want him to have that time,
i really do.
of course sometimes i wish he'd do it on cue – as in: could you occupy yourself for 15 mintues while i do something, bonz?
but, like most everything in life, the best stuff often happens when it's unprompted.
* um, except above. mama, i see you watching me!
