Watcha Doin?

"Watcha Doin?"  Is the favorite phrase of the little boy next door.  Doesn't matter how many times you answer him, he'll ask you again and again.

He has that typical little boy innocence and those eyes big with wonder as he watches you do meaningless (to you anyway) tasks.  While it can become annoying it's still darn cute.

Imagine being young enough to look at everything in such innocence and wonder?  I know he sometimes drive my husband crazy but this weekend when he was doing some auto repairs in the driveway I watched this cute little boy watch my husband from our bedroom window.

The look on his face was priceless - mouth agape, eyes big, eyebrows raised.  To him it was like watching a space landing or rockets blasting.  The pure joy in his face made his constant asking "watcha doin?" much easier to handle.

Too bad we lose that innocence and wonder.  Explains why everyone is so darn tense all the time.
