Here's what I really intended to share when I logged on this morning. Many of you have seen this first one, but a few months ago, Aidan sat down with a piece of paper and a pen and drew this.
As he drew, he told me that the one on the right is Daddy, and the one on the left is Aidan. I was pretty impressed. I'm not sure what the normal three-year-old can draw, but this was more than I expected. Like a good Mommy, I saved it...but apparently not in a safe enough place. It has gotten a little crinkled.
Aidan hasn't asked for crayons in a while, and I haven't thought to give them to him. A couple days ago, he asked for the crayons. This is what he drew.
There's a lot that's done in white crayon that I can't distinguish, but that is clearly a little dinosaur/dragon on the left side of the page. And there's an airplane flying overhead! And he told me that's a little black arrow pointing to the airplane. I mean, I know he's my child and I'm biased, but wow. I didn't really expect his drawings to be distinguishable for another couple of years. Silly me.
