New year, New #ThisIs35 prompt - and it's the last one, #8:
"When your toddler plops into the grass to do “grass angels” then looks up and finds a sliver of a new moon and immediately says, “but how do I get to it?” and decides to march inside and find last Halloween’s astronaut costume, promptly returning outside to deem you an alien and question how you got to this planet called, “what again,” “oh yeah, Earth, where I live.”
When you look up yourself, realize you don’t know how to explain the moon, nor Earth, nor even really how that toddler got here (at least not yet), but that this is it, this is 35 and this IS what it’s all about."
Remember, your story doesn't have to perfectly align to the prompt, it's meant as a thought starter more than anything. This one's truly about the ability children have to put us know it all adults in our place sometimes, in the most fascinating, humbling and inspiring ways - share yours here: https://www.reneecasteelcook.com/be-featured
