On Tuesday, Dash sat down to make a card for his beloved teacher. I oversaw the drawing of the picture:
[Draws a big curve]
- What's that going to be?
- An earring. Because we're giving her earrings.
- Um. No, we're not. Remember I said that wasn't the best idea? We're giving her a gift card.
[Erases curve. Draws a big rectangle.]
- No, you really don't have to draw the gift card. Why don't you draw something Christmassy?
- Okay, I'll draw a present. On a reindeer.
Then I was distracted in the other room while he started with the writing. I could hear him sounding out "Happy Christmas," but he didn't ask me anything, so I didn't offer.
I think his teacher should be happy with the result. I loved it.
