Will, my 4-year-old, has the potential to be an artist some day, or maybe a professional baseball player, or maybe a samurai ninja.. LOL. Seriously though, the kid loves to be artistic. Drawing on his Magnadoodle, or coloring with crayons and markers are some of his favorite things to do.
A few days ago he rushed into my bedroom while I was putting away laundry, very excited and proud to show me his latest piece of "art."
"OH, wow!" I said, in that "I-have-no-clue-what-this-is-but-let-me-act-excited" mommy kind of way. "Tell me about it," I said.
Will tells me an unexpected and thoughtful explanation for his art:
"Those are foot prints of animals. Animals with holes in their feet. Because, we need to think about the poor animals with holes in their feet."
Indeed Will, we do!
