Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

For Posterity

This seems a bit TMI for Facebook and the bragging nature makes me more comfortable sharing it pseudonymously as a blogger, plus almost no one will see it here.  I just wanted to make a note of this somewhere in case we ever want to remember it later.

Anyway, we have a young son who is getting more mobile all the time.  A few weeks ago he crawled to the bathroom after I was done with my morning routine and walked out to get dressed.  He used the shower door to pull himself up to standing, squatted next to the toilet, and pooped (into his diaper).  It was the first time we noticed him explicitly squatting for that activity, and he seemed to have intentionally chosen his location; though, as parents, it's easy to excitedly read into things like that and imagine more than is there.

Yesterday, one week shy of turning nine months old, he did something very similar with my wife.  After she walked out he crawled into the same bathroom, pulled himself into a standing position, pulled off his diaper--something we've never known him to do--and peed on the base of the toilet--the first time we've ever noticed him being possibly strategic about when and where he's peed.  Again, we might be reading into things, but then again twice might make a pattern emerging.  It seems quite likely to us that he's figured out what toilets are for and is trying to imitate what he sees us doing.

It's strange the things that make you proud as a parent.
