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.
