Well, Peter isn't too crazy about my last post regarding PMS, so to make him stop PMSing at me about it, I'm going to put something new up. (Ha ha, I couldn't resist that one!) As an aside, since this is a post I meant to do weeks ago, there are many things I'd like to write about or post pictures of on my blog that I never get to do. If I spent time doing everything I wish I could do with the blog, I would have to neglect my son and my house and making dinner and several other things. So I just have to fit in blog posts when I can. I really wish there were more hours in the day!
Anyway, a few weeks ago on a rainy weekday afternoon, John actually did some artwork. Hooray! With the exception of my amateur photography hobby, neither Peter nor I are all that artistic, and I'm afraid that as a result our child doesn't seem to be very artistic either. He hasn't shown too much interest in art except for a brief, messy love affair with finger painting last summer. So I was very pleased on that rainy day when I asked him if he wanted to paint and he said yes. He made some nice pictures that I then hung up on the fridge to dry and display. He enjoyed it, and I'm now motivated to make this a more regular part of his life. My plan is to make art projects fun and interesting for him, because it is important and it's a good way for a child to learn to express himself. (Thank you, Alyson and Caroline, for inspiring me to bring the joy of art into his life!)
