I wanted to post something positive to balance out all the gloom and doom of my other post today. This really made my day, and I really needed it! This is Me Too's FIRST SELF-PORTRAIT! (Grammie, I uploaded this one full quality so you can pull it right off the web for your scrapbook!)
The boys do a lot of artwork in the mornings before breakfast. While I was cooking breakfast today I heard Kal-El say to Me Too "Wow Me Too! What a great picture! That's a really good one! Mommy, come see Me Too's picture...it's different than all of his other ones."
Me Too said to Kal-El, very casually, "It's a picture of myself. Wearing a hat. With a propeller."
Kal-El was right, it is different than all of his other ones. Me Too has been in the "scribbling stage" for a long time. Although he likes to draw letters and shapes, he has NEVER intentionally drawn an particular object before. If he's been drawing mandalas, I haven't noticed.
It really surprised me me and made me smile that his first "human" was "myself" and that he came complete with with a hat with a propeller.
