“So Mel. Where did you get that image for your header? It’s soooo cool and original. I’m green with envy!”
I know, I know. It’s pretty cool, isn’t it? Well, I think so, and since it’s my blog, I can say what ever I want. 🙂 This is an original work by Thing 1. He did this at art camp last year (the same one where we had an issue with un-requited love). It’s actually in this year’s catalog for the art camp. He’s really proud of it, and he should be. It’s got a nice balance and feel. At least I think so, and my opinion is the only one who counts here.
I figured since I talked about how worried I was about him, I would show you the kind of potential he has. This same kiddo also came up with an alternative history for the Pacific battles in WWII. He based his project on the idea that the ships at Pearl Harbor needed to have been deployed differently so that they would be able to defend themselves better against any attack. He then posited that having more ships available would have shortened the war in the Pacific dramatically. Pretty cool stuff I think. Anyway, he’s a fabulous kid going through a rough patch. I just don’t want this rough patch to define his development.
Ok, now if you recall, you have to leave a comment on this post as well. That’s right: I want you to tell me how fabulous my kid is. Do it for the cookies! And don’t forget to post a comment on yesterday’s post as well. City Girl already has her cookies, but there is one more up for grabs.
BTW, thanks for all of your comments on my other post about Thing 1. My task right now with all of this is to keep it in perspective and be there for him. Your comments helped with that.
