My Budding Artist
Mikey has taken his drawings to a new level in the last few days. This morning he informed me that he is an artist. Here are are few of his drawings of late:
1. He drew each member of the family and wrote their names beside them. The people looked more like spiders (he gives them about 10 fingers on each hand and ten toes on each foot). He gave each person a different color of hair. He included our pets and they actually look like animals!
2. I was a bit cranky yesterday and apparently Mikey noticed. He drew a picture and showed me that it was a “mean mom” picture. I had a reeeeeeally long arm and he said it was so that I could spank him. And he drew him in his bed far away from my arm. Hahaha.
3. This morning he drew Lexi and I with our names. Then he made me write down everything that we eat for breakfast because he wanted to draw a checkmark beside the words. I wrote oatmeal, eggs & toast, pancakes, and cereal. Then he got frustrated because he couldn’t make a good checkmark, so I drew the checkmarks. Then he wanted to draw our whole family eating each of the foods for breakfast. But he couldn’t draw a good bowl so he made me draw a bowl but got mad when I drew the oatmeal in it because HE wanted to draw the oatmeal. He got 4 four bowls drawn and then told me I needed to draw each person eating the food with a spoon. I stink at drawing so all of these assignments were quite traumatic for me. But Mikey was happy, and after I drew two people he figured it out and drew the rest.
While drawing these pictures he also decided he should color his fingernails with the markers and then he wouldn’t wash them off because he thought his preschool friends would think they were soooo neat. That’s my little Mikey. Can’t believe he is 4 years old!
