Beautiful picture but maybe a little too sharp for my taste.

We don't really know how the mind of a child works. We rarely remember much of those early days, and the brain grows so fast and connects and reconnects and disconnects and changes almost every hour, if it even takes so long.

We don't really know how the mind of a child works, and sometimes it can confuse us and fluster us, and sometimes despite everything we try to do, the child can only look at us helplessly, or cry, or scream, or seek their own way of calm and comfort.

Whether it's a thumb, or a favorite stuffed animal, or a blanket held tight, or sitting in a chair and rocking themselves, every child has a comfort of their own, that they discover on their own.

And when a day of laughter and play and discovery turns to a moment of fear or anger or frustration or sadness, and when we as parents or caregivers simply cannot find a way to understand what it is that upsets them, sometimes it is because it isn't us that needs to comfort them at all.

We don't really know how the mind of a child works, but sometimes all we need to know is that often they'll work it out for themselves.

Great eyes but I think the blur of the hand in the foreground takes away. She's a love. :~)
