Tell me you see it?

Please tell me you do :)

I drew a "T" on Itty Bit's chalkboard.

He then proceeded to tell me "Truck" and drew this:


Speaking as someone who is not artistically inclined (save ballet), I thought it was a rather decent rendering of a wheeled vehicle. Being somewhat recognizable tells you that he didn't get it from me!
Doesn't every parent get this excited when their two-year old finally starts drawing things that look like people and animals and motorized rigs?

That is awesome! Coming from a former kindergarten teacher. He did a great job...I totally knew what it was! Awesome job Itty!

I see the truck! Way to go, Itty Bit!

I too took a picture of Isaac's first drawing that actually resembled something - his self-portrait. I was so proud!

And you know what, he drew it on a chalk board, too!

Wow! I am way impressed! I most definitely see the truck!! Wasn't it just last week you wrote me that he drew you as a line? I'd like to see what he comes up with now.

Love it!

Isn't it wonderful when they start developing real actual drawing skills? It's so fun to see them progress. What's even more fun is to guess at what they drew after they proudly bring their creation over to you. :)

Yes, I can see it, too! He did great!

I am amazed at how well my kids can draw. I think a lot of it is that they haven't been told that they can't do it. We tell them how well they are drawing and we work hard to "see" what they want us to see. I think it gives them the confidence to try bigger and better drawings.

I try not to say "I can't draw that" when the kids ask me to draw something because I don't want to ever make them think they can't draw unless it looks "perfect". And, to them, I can draw anything. :-)
