Day 5 of Project 2015

We bought a board game “Googly Eyes” for our 8-year-old nephew for Christmas. The game involves drawing and guessing what people are drawing while they are wearing vision-altering googles.

And from this game alone, we had some take-home messages.

(1) We got to see life in a whole different perspective LITERALLY. The vision that we have to see things “clearly” without assistance – the game took our appreciation of our eyesight to a whole new level.

This is what it looked like through the glasses at the game board.

(2) It is okay to relax and let loose. Laugh at ourselves sometimes and just have fun!

(3) We are terrible at drawing (or are we?), We did much better than we expected and when we have our nephews saying, “That’s actually pretty good!” – It really does boost up our confidence and does show how important perspective really is.

Summary of January 5

Newbies

Today we experienced what it would be like to be parents to 4 children. We took our 3 nephews and niece to the movies – it was lots of fun but lots of hard work too. We really do admire those who are parents to be able to manage the land of little people. 

Brighter/Different Perspective?

Not to take ourselves so seriously – being light-hearted and having a laugh is so refreshing. Yep, we looked pretty goofy! 

As Charlie Chaplin once said:

“A day without laughter is a day wasted.”

    LOL, nothing like jumping in the deep end and going from zero kids to four in one afternoon! At least most parents have the luxury of increasing the tribe one at a time. 🙂 What did you see?

    • We went to see Penguins of Madagascar. That movie series is so clever and funny. The kids enjoyed it immensely and yes, you are right, increasing tribe one at a time would definitely “ease” parents into it 🙂 But we had fun, that’s what matters!!
