The little things....

Not so long ago my husband and I were discussing Kyan's apparent lack of interest in drawing and painting. Wondering if & when he would start to enjoy drawing rather than saying "I can't draw that!" everytime he would sit down to draw. Despite attempting to teach him how to draw faces, he never really wanted to learn.

So imagine my surprise when he called me to the blackboard to show me his picture.....A FACE!! This is very exciting because it's the first face he has drawn, ever!

I took a photo of his picture because Rohan is away all week and I knew he would want to see it.

So here is the photo of Kyan and his face picture....a small moment of 'artiness' for my little number loving boy.

Since then he has done a drawing of our vege garden and a dragon. Just goes to show that they do things when they are ready and not a moment sooner.

  1. hee hee, my eldest was very disinterested in drawing, on his 5th birthday at kinder he drew a self portrait riding on a rhinos' back in the sun. It was a masterpiece and we didn't get another for 10months! He is 11 and quiet a good little artist now, well ahead of his peers at school (if only his compliance matched LOL)
    So yes, I understand this excitment you are feeling!!!!
