Laser Eyes

A’s Eyes 

Have you ever gotten the look?

You know the one that I mean…

If eyes could kill–you would be dead kind of look



100% annoyed

100% do not want to be listen to you right now kind-of-look

The kind of eyes that makes you sigh

And make you feel like no matter what you do, you can’t do it right

You arrive too late. 

The next time too early.

Usually your eyes shine

Bright blue

Full of curiosity 

Followed by a string of questions

Questions about the world

And how things work

Usually your eyes are problem solving

Creating towers out of crayons

Turning boxes into buildings 

Using your endless supply of tape 

Usually your eyes show pure joy

Sharing your happiness and laughter with the world

Like when you rollerblade down the hallway

Or when you are playing an imaginary game with your younger sister 

Or when you share a new joke you have learned

Usually your eyes show your determination

Like last month when you wanted to read the most books for February’s reading challenge

Or when you write and plan for your newest video adventure

Or when you really want something and someone tells you no

But today, in this moment

Your eyes are like lasers

Annoyed with my decision to arrive early

  1. I can see this look. And also it made me think of one of Mardi’s looks. 🙂
    I love the way you describe the usually vs. the now look. So many looks that our kids give us. I know them well!
