Innocence Personified – Week 6, 2021 – Project 365

It is week 6 of 2021 already, Alhamdulilah! Sharing a picture daily from our small world as part of Project 365

Saturday, February 6, 2021

We went to the local mall for our weekly grocery shopping and my teeny tiny baby did not want the time to pass. So there she is – talking snail steps 😀 I feel her – who likes to be cooped up at home always ?!

5-year-old did a Sports related craft for her school tomorrow in lieu of Qatar National Sports Day celebrations.

Went for an early morning stroll in the Souq nearby when her sister went to school. Strolling the souq in pyjamas – the life! 😀

It was Qatar National Sports Day today and a national holiday (Celebrated on the second Tuesday of February to promote a healthy lifestyle) We didnt venture out anywhere due to the rising cases.

My favorite corner of the house which I intended to be a reading space. Eventually it ended up being work from home space/ jumping up and down space/bird-watching space/ even a place for naps😆

I was about to take a picture when she correctly positions herself and even opens a book haha. No-pictures-without-me phase of toddlerhood.

Do you have a reading space in your home?

Just today, I was thinking i will not have anything interesting to post on my #Project365 since we will be at home more now due to the rising number of cases.

…and then this happened!

Picture 1 : Drawing a ‘supise gift’ for her sister while she is in school.

Picture 2 : Waiting excitedly in the hallway with her tiny artwork for her sister to come back from school to give the ‘supise gift’ Alhamdulilah

Heart melt! Alhamdulilah

There are stories to tell everyday.

Six billion of us walking on the planet, six billion smaller worlds on the bigger one. Shoe- salesmen and short-order cooks who look boring from the outside – some have weirder lives than you. Six billion stories, every one an epic, full of tragedy and triumph, good and evil, despair and hope

For a child, everything is a wonder. Light falling through the windows. Shadows moving as they move. The shapes on the floor.

Do we have the same curiosity and wonder now that we had as children? Why does it reduce with age?

This enthusiastic curiosity doesn’t have to diminish with age. Learning occurs naturally when we make situations and conditions that are safe to satisfy this curiosity of our children.

Our duty as parents is to give them supportive environment, offer experiences as per their age and to explore their curiosity together with the same enthusiasm. (And not to be like – ‘oh that is shadow. No big deal’ – NO) Allow them to ask questions. Tell them ‘I don’t know’ ‘We will read on Google or find the answer from a book’. Allow them to guess the answers.

‘If you want children to continue dreaming to the moon and beyond, then dream with them, both by sharing your fervent dreams and by diving heart first into their own’ – Vince Gowmon

Yet another sunset. Yet another week comes to a close. Have a happy week ahead.

Kids have an innate innocence and curiosity within them. May life never make them lose their childish spirit.

  1. The mall looks very empty; your daughter looks tiny in all that space! I love the shoebox football pitch, what a fun idea for a shoebox craft. How lovely that your little one made a “supise gift” for her sister. I love the way children find everything a wonder – the world is certainly a much more interesting place when seen through their eyes. #project365

  2. Aww! I think when I finally go out shopping again I will be taking snail steps too. Last time I shopped was at the beginning of December.
    Your reading space is gorgeous. It looks a lovely place to relax.
    That is so sweet of your youngest to draw a picture for her sister. x

  3. The shopping centre is so empty. Ours is more busy, despite lockdown. We don’t have a reading space, although my son builds dens – mostly to watch youtube on his laptop in.

  4. I am not sure the last time I went to the shops. But I think I would be the same as your daughter baby steps so I can stay out longer. Love the reading corner.

  5. Beautiful sunset!

    Wow the mall looks so quiet! Our main shopping centre is basically shut as all the non essential shops are shut

    So sweet of her to draw a picture for her sister!

  6. I can totally understand taking small steps when out. Its all been very home based this past year. I haven’t been in a supermarket for over a year. The last time we went into town it was in the even when the shops were shut #365

  7. It sounds like that corner of your home is everyone’s favourite space now! Love the sports related craft, well done to your five year old. That’s very sweet of your youngest making a picture for her sister. A trip to the mall for groceries is an adventure right now, I miss having a whole world to explore. Lockdown seems to be going on forever here.
