budding artist


I know all mothers think their child is a genius, and we have every right to! But I was a bit impressed with my sons attempt at putting his imagination on paper today. He usually doesn't want anything to do with a coloring book. But today was a bit different. There was an orange piece of paper on the table and I gave him a blue marker and told him to color something. A minute later I turned around expecting a scribble mark, but to my amazement, this is what I beheld! I know it's no Rembrandt, but it was from my little guy. And when I asked him what he wanted to name it, he said, "BUGGY DAY!" Which was in direct correlation to the mosquito I had killed moments before he drew his picture. Cute, you may say, but I say it is pure genius!

I love kids' artwork!! You must frame that! Another thing that is fun to do, is to scan it and make it into cards for the grandparents!! Cheap fathers' day gift!!

Erin,
I thought this would be the easiest way to respond to your post...the alphabet puzzle you saw on our blog is called "Alphabet Train floor puzzle". It is from "Melissa and Doug" at Lights, Camera, Interaction!,Inc. Their is a phone number on the side of the box too--1-800-284-3948. Hope this helps.

yah, i'm seeing the genius there because i have a three year old, too. she scribbles hard on every picture--methodically grabbing one crayon after another. everything is rainbow brite. so i would have to agree with mommy--pure genius!
