It's fun to see him be interested in and eager about drawing. Today he was so excited to show me his first family portrait! What a masterpiece!
|He asked me to take a picture and made sure to put the stylus behind his ear beforehand :)|
This drawing may appear a little behind schedule based on this developmental guideline, but anyone who's anyone knows that Twodles is as sharp as a tack, just marches to the beat of his own drum!
The artist in me longs for him to love creating as much as I do and I'm committing to giving both my boys more opportunities to be creative even though the OCD in me (let's be honest here, all of us have a little OCD hidden in some cob-webbed corner of our being, right?) doesn't prefer messy adventures to clean up.
Here is a quote from one of my favorite articles that touches on the power of creating:
"Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty.." -Happiness, Your Heritage, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
If you haven't read the article you should! It speaks to my soul and motivates me to improve. It just might do the same for you.
Can't wait to see what he creates next!
