"Wegs and Hayur"

K likes pens, and markers, and chalk, and anything that resembles a writing implement.

Whenever you have a pen and something to write on, she tells you, "you make happy fassssth."

So I make happy faces.

Happy face after happy face.

Big ones, little ones, silly ones, and sad ones.

Whatever makes her happy.

A hundred of them isn't too many for her. I can sit there for an hour drawing a circle two eyes and a mouth.

So then my almost-3-year-old-baby-3rd-child, after a year of studying the happy face pattern, took a white board marker on Christmas Eve and drew this...
Photobucket
...amid the Bakugan, she made a happy face of her own. Complete with "hayur" and "wegs" coming out of the head!

My developmentally-appropriate child is a genius!

    First off, HOLLA for being listed HIGHER than Dooce!!! WOOT!

    Second, she is adorable. My kids are still banned from drawing instruments after a wall accident, but maybe I need to rethink things so they don't fall behind.
