Window Watching – The Ordinary Moments

LP has started to realise when Daddy will be leaving for work, when he’ll be coming home and that there is a whole world outside our window – it doesn’t stop just because we’ve come through the front door.

After Christmas we rearranged the furniture and our toy box is now back in front of the window, it’s original home but a place it hasn’t been since LP was tiny. This has become LP’s favourite place to climb up and sit, to look out the window and watch the world go by.

She climbs up there when Daddy announces he’s off to work and if I say to her that Daddy will be home soon she’ll climb up to wait for the first glimpse of him as he comes home.

I imagine times in the future, where both LP and Little Man will be sat on the toy box, waiting for that first glimpse of Daddy or waving to him as he leaves for work in the afternoon but for now Little Man is slightly too small to climb onto the toy box and LP sits there by herself, watching people walk past, pointing out the cars and shouting at our cats playing outside.

    That looks like a fab spot to sit and watch the world go by. My two have started rushing to the window to wave daddy off in the morning, and it is sweet to see x

    What a lovely photo, so cute that she likes to sit and wait for him to come home. Amelia knows when daddy comes home from work if shes still awake as she can hear the car and his music haha so she’ll run to the window or the door and shout through the letter box. xx

    this is such a great photo. I have to lift Daniel onto the windowsill so he can ‘window wave’ at Daddy as he returns home from work x

    This is so cute and such a gorgeous photo Donna- you can just imagine what she is thinking as she is sat there. I bet Daddy loves to see that little face watching for him when he comes home in the afternoon. xx

    I love how excited kids get for their daddy!…their mummy is a different story. The two of them will be perched up there very soon, I’m sure which will be so lovely! x

    This is so sweet, I just love how she is perched up there looking out for him and you are right it won’t be long before they both sit on there looking out for Daddy. What a lovely story behind a photo xx

    Aww, she’s so cute. I can remember doing exactly this waiting for my dad to come home when I was little too.
