Do You Realize...?

As most inquisitive 4 year olds are, Liam was asking yet again how/why the sun goes down and where does it go. Obviously he had outgrown the whole idea that the sun goes to bed at night story. Spencer told him that when we got home he would show him with his globe and a flashlight.

As I was going about doing before bedtime things I saw this sight and ran to grab my camera. This was truly a priceless moment in time that I had to capture.

This put me in mind of these lyrics by the Flaming Lips

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face. . .Do You Realize - we're floating in space. . . Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry. . .Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die. . .
And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them knowYou realize that life goes fastIt's hard to make the good things last. . .You realize the sun doesn't go downIt's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

These have to be some of the most bittersweet lyrics to a song. Beautifully sorrowful.
