Lately, LittleMiss is not very fond of her stroller – “No! Walk march me, Mom.”
When her path is clear, she let’s go of my hand and walk by herself.
Kuya V’s first time to cross the road alone. LittleMiss was yelling at her “No. Stop. Look, left and right.” I felt a sense of pride and sadness, the realization that he’s a big boy now. “See, Mom! I did it! Checked for cars and cross street. Kalas! ” Soon, he’ll ask that I no longer walk with him.
LittleMiss realized that I allowed Kuya to walk by himself, so she asked me to stop walking. She marched all the way to her big brother while humming a tune, looking back at me, making sure I kept my distance.
We came across 4 of these donation boxes.
and this Earth Rod box. Kuya V explained that it has a stick inside that keeps Dubai attached to Earth so we won’t get lost in outer space.
We always discover something new on our afternoon walk. Sometimes we take the longer route and pretend we are lost, Dora (aka LittleMiss) takes her imaginary map to help us. We sit on the building stairs to look up at the clouds and point out some unusual shapes.
“Ma, I love walking with you and Isabelle.”
I do too.

My little girl is getting very independant too 🙂 Love the explanation of the earth rod box!
Thanks Sara! They grow up so fast. When we read the real meaning of the earth rod box, V preferred his explanation
My son is the same, and I really have a hard time keeping up with him! A walk with kids is always fun.
Sure is. It’s nice to see things the way they see it.
I love seeing the world through our children’s eyes-it makes it all seem to much fun.
It really is, fun! And I get to be a kid again, sometimes
Aw, they grow up fast and want independence. I love the way children make every walk different.
Thanks for sharing #LetKidsbeKids
It’s nice to have a chance to see the world thru them.
