"You know what, Mama?" he asked me one morning. "I want to draw a heart. I want to draw a heart just for you."
"That is so sweet, buddy! I would love that."
"Drew, look!" his brother said as he raced to the chalkboard. "There's a heart! See it? It's right there! See it?"
"Yeah, I see it. It look really really hard," my three year old answered.
"But you can do it. I will help you," I told him.
"Okay, but it gonna be hard. I have to draw a triangle and a butt to make that heart."
I stopped and looked at the heart and started laughing out loud. "Well, I never looked at it that way but you are right! It's a triangle with a butt on top! Ready to try it?" And so we did.
Kids are hilarious. They see the world through a completely different lense and they have no hesitation about sharing it with us. I absolutely love that about them. We should all take a page out of their book. Embrace your creative side today and don't be afraid to express yourself. It just might bring you a great amount of joy.
