Hugh is learning the phonetic alphabet song “a-a-apple, b-b-ball” and I’m making him a little alphabet garland to hang up in his room. There’s i-i-igloo and g-g-goat and h-h-hand.
Forgive the blurry photo but I had to show you Hugh’s drawing. He was supposed to be practicing the letter “F” on the chalk board. I turned my back for a few minutes and he made this awesome “flying goblin” instead. (Check out the eyelashes! And the mouth! It’s always so interesting what four-year-old-artists notice about the face. Hugh notices eyelashes and teeth. He always draws the mouth extra-wide to make room for all the teeth he has planned.) I wish I could have kept it forever. I believe I forbad him from erasing it for the rest of the day.
