We have been coloring galore. Here is a Darby/Baylie combo. Which means Darby colored the picture and then Baylie scribbled over it. We love those Twistable Crayons...you can't draw on your belly with them and they make crayons cooler.
Darby Drawing. Can you find the 'D'. That is the only lettered we've mastered.
I am a loved mother. Here is what I have been finding in Luke's backpack everyday. Like three or four of these folded noted with I Heart You on it. So what did I find inside?
These cute drawings from Luke to his Mom. On the left is two ships blasting each other. Okay, I thought. Until I opened this one.
A full out war drawing just for me. Flowers? No. Happy Family Picture? No. Shooting and guns. Hmmm... If I had a daughter first would these be the pictures I would be getting home?
Our friends finally moved but before they did we had a play date at our house with lots more coloring. Here's how the conversation went down.
(Luke and Julian coloring at the table, me in the living room with the other kids. The boys had been coloring star wars transformers)
Luke: Mom, how do you spell destroy?
Luke: Mom, now how do you spell girls?
Me: Luke, that is not very nice, I don't want you writing that.
Luke: But how do you spell girls?
Me: Luke, I really don't want you writing that. Remember I'm a girl too!
followed by more Bla Bla Bla parenting mumbo jumbo
Me inside my head: What!!??
He ended up just sounding it out himself, followed by another talk from me.
