Week 10 of PODcast‘s new linky The Alphabet Photography Project! I was so tempted to go with J is for JCB this week. Monkey is obsessed with them, no real preference to a digger or an articulated dump truck. As long as it’s yellow and is a real JCB, he is in awe. Everywhere we go I have to take photos of JCB, even at the Grand Prix, I made sure I took some JCB photos for him. But I decided that the most important J to me, is his joy at experiencing the things he loves. So my Alphabet Photography Project J is for Joy.
I love this photo, which regular readers will have seen before recently in a #365 post. It sums up Monkey. He loves his Dad, he loves train, he loves steam. Put those three things together and you get squeals of delight, look at me Mummy, look we’re off, pure joy.
Life for a 4 year old is full of joy, actually I could have picked countless photos of Monkey that express this word. It’s an age where things are truly exciting, life is to be explored (somewhat cautiously by Monkey) and enjoyed. Their worries are few and far between. Life is an adventure.
We’d spent the day at a local Steam Traction Show, he’d loved every minute of it. Then when he saw the miniature railway, he was in heaven. Daddy look! I love looking at his expression, he gets so excited. It’s just wonderful to watch. Joy, pure joy.
