Candy corn corner

October 4th, 2016

The imagination of children never ceases to amaze me. One night while lying in bed with me just chatting - as is our nightly ritual - my daughter told me she loves to look at "the candy corn on the ceiling."

I have no idea what that means.

Then she pointed out that the door frame, yellow hallway, and white ceiling come together to form a little tri-colored triangle that looks like a candy corn. I have a very colorful house, if you're wondering.

Do you see the candy corn?

Do you see the candy corn?

Oh yeah! I see it!

How cool is that? I never would have noticed it if she didn't tell me.

"I like my candy corn. I like to think about it as I fall asleep. I dream about Candy Land and all my favorite candies that I can eat whenever I want," she explained.

My gosh, that is so cute.

And once again, I'm grateful for a child who constantly challenges and changes my perception of life.
