Monday Moment #22

Over the weekend we journeyed over the Hood Canal Bridge for the first time in over 5 weeks. Being cut off from the other side of the canal has been a big deal for the community and our lives personally (we travel that way many times per month).

So, on Saturday afternoon I loaded the girlies in the mini-van for our first trip across the new Hood Canal bridge (you know, to do important go to Target, Costco, and the mall). As we approached the bridge, I made sure to announce it to the girlies, because it's a big deal, right? To travel over this new 5 million dollar project?

But what was their reaction. "Yih..." Shrug. One said, "There's sure a lot of bird poop for a brand new bridge." Which was true.

Isn't that just how it is though? When adults view an event or situation one way, it's experienced by a child so differently.

What event or situation does your character experience differently than an adult in their world?
