Sometime last week a new display appeared at my son's Playgroup - an array of little house pictures coloured in with varying degrees of artistic style and verve!
The pictures had yet to be labelled with names so I chatted with another mum about which one was likely to belong to OB. I decided on one with a particularly scrawly spread of green felt tip haphazardly swished across it - this seemed to fit with OB's tendency to get fixated on one colour and refuse absolutely to even consider a quick trot across the colour spectrum.
So imagine my surprise, pride and slight mortification when the names appeared later in the week and this is what turned out to be my son's effort!
Not bad eh? See how he's used a variety of colours and picked out the windows and doors? See how he's had a go at colouring within the lines? See how he's given it an upside-down eyebrow? And he's not even three years old!
Obviously a colouring genius! I must seek out specialist art tuition forthwith!
Seriously though, a good lesson for Mummy - do not think down or talk down your son!
