One of the great privileges of parenthood is getting to relive firsts through your child’s eyes. The first snowfall, the first ice cream, the first swim in an ocean. “Parenthood gives you the first four years of you life back,” I read once. It’s kind of bonkers to me that in five years on this planet, Luma had never seen a rainbow until today. We stepped out of our front door this afternoon to go for a walk, and there it was, in the clearing rain, and late summer sun, a rainbow. Like a full moon or a lightning storm, rainbows never seize to amaze me. “Shall we go find the pot of gold,” she asked full of glee. “Oh, you’ve found it already, sweet girl,” I said. “The gold is in the feeling that we’re feeling right this second. It’s in the wonder and magic of it all.”
