i observed a really cute baby boy today, probably around 2 years old, at the mountain view caltrain station with his parents. his mom was white and his dad looked filipino. (the facts)

his parents were trying to get him excited about the trains approaching...pointing and saying "look here comes the big train!" and this was an express train that flew by, loud and hard. and after it had passed, this little boy exclaimed "FAST!!!!!" and waved his arms in the direction the train was going..and it was SO cute..because "FAST" was all this little boy had in his arsenal to describe what he had just seen and he kept saying it, excitedly with his arms waving. (the story)

i hope when i'm a mother there are countless moments like these.
