Quote of the day – Deepak Chopra

“For me and my family personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter.”
– Deepak Chopra

Little Builder’s Block – NBC

If there is writer’s block,
then there is also builder’s block.
My little six-year old insists on buying
the Petit Block for kids age 12+
but it’s clearly not for a petite builder like her.

“I can build this cute looking cat, Mom!”
she exclaimed.
Back home, she opened the packet
and found the instructions.

She began to mull over the step-by-step guide on
how to put together this block kitty.

We peeped at our little builder as
she struggled to follow the steps.
I know she will eventually find a way to
assemble the cat out of these small blocks
and it’s amazing what she can come up with 
after the short spell of the builder’s block.

“Look, Mom! It’s a mommy cat with its baby!”

She said she is not done yet and
there are more to come.  
Watch out for Part 2!
For now, this petite builder is happy
with the new cats on the block.
