Budding Artist

I've really been impressed lately with Bryce's drawing/writing skills - he's coloring is better than ever and he's been getting better with his letters. But this weekend he independently decided to draw Sponge Bob (my "favorite"). I just looked over and there was Bob as plain as day without me even having to ask who it was. I was so proud of him. (I only wish he had done it on a clean sheet of unlined paper that didn't have marker on the other side so it would have been just perfect.) But, I still love it just the same. When he was done he said he didn't know how to draw Patrick and I told him to try. His Patrick came out a little skinny but I was glad he gave it a try. He knew not to give Patrick a nose, so I'm impressed by his memory.

It was cute this morning though when I showed him that I had hung it up and he said, "Mommy, I know you don't like Sponge Bob, but do you like my picture?"

That will make me feel a little bad so I told him that I like pictures of Sponge Bob because he's not talking and that is what I don't like about SBSP - his obnoxious comments and banter. So Bryce can draw all the Sponge Bob he wants, that doesn't bother me one bit.
