Magic Marker Monday: Gordon

A couple of weeks ago, Bitty brought me his watercolors and put them in my hand. This is a rare request for him, usually he isn't particularly interested in artistic endeavors.

"Do you want to paint?"


"Do you want me to open this?"


"What do you say?"

"Opeh... PWEEZ!"

I opened up the paints for him and found a little bowl and put a small amount of water in (the less to make a mess with, my dear, haha).

He did a few strokes with his paintbrush before he got bored. I put extra water on the paints to soften them up, because I think part of the problem was he wasn't getting much color onto his brush.

A little while later, I found this at the table:

The colors he used made it clear that he was painting a picture of Gordon (one of Thomas' buddies for those not steeped in the world of Thomas & Friends). I love how he knew what he wanted to paint and brought it over to use as a model :).

Fantastic! I don't think everyone can really understand how incredible it is when our kids who can't verbalize very well manage to get across what they want to say or do in other ways. I love his painting of Gordon!

So creative! It's always amazing to see how little one's think about things!

Every day we are suprized with “small” episodes like this one. Some of them we understand but there are some others that we don't catch. The life is not the same without those “small” episodes!
