The World According to Jacob

They say having a baby changes everything.  And they (whoever “they” are) are right.

When I look at things from Jacob’s perspective, I see that the underside of a chair is more fascinating than the seat; a coffee table is something to chew on; and books are intended to be drooled upon, rather than read.

Even laundry isn’t just laundry–it’s the raw material of the greatest game on the planet.




I like the way this little guy thinks!
