Etch- A -Sketch Prodigy



Ok - I suppose every parent thinks that their child is talented, special and fairly smart. I am no different. BUT... the Little Man, who is nine and in a cast is freakishly talented. No, he is not reading "Being and Nothingness" by Jean Paul Sartre or doing quantum physics...he is creating amazing pictures on Etch-A-Sketch! You know, the magnetic thing that uses one continuous line!

Now, if you have read my earlier blogs and have seen pictures of my house you will see the resemblance. This is a picture of our house, trees, bushes, wood-chip paths and all! I barely can write my name legibly on Etch-A-Sketch. Now, please tell me if I am blowing this out of proportion but I have never seen an Etch-A-Sketch picture like this...well, only in the movie "Elf". Pretty cool.

That's pretty cool. I was lucky if I could actually make a square. ;) The kidlet certainly has his Mom's creative genes. Aside from creating great art, how is he doing? Healing well?

Hilary - Thanks for asking and checking in. He has one week left with the cast and then hopefully he will have it removed for good. He is in good spirits and has been going to school for the past 2 weeks for full days. Having some normalcy and getting back to routines has helped him a lot. It has also helped The Professor and I keep our jobs.
