Samuel's Illustration

I had to scan in this drawing done by Samuel intended for his brother. Nicholas had, apparently, been a little aggressive with Samuel soon after he got his cast on his arm. Instead of physically lashing out at Nick (because Samuel didn't feel good), he drew this picture for him instead:

(I love that you can see the anger behind the all capital letters & the exclamation point. And, the arrows pointing to a "mean" and a "nice" kid.)

He was quite angry when he brought this paper to me & asked me to please show it to Nicholas so he would understand how to treat Samuel.

It's so hard not to laugh in front of your child when they are being so serious & passionate about something like this. I promised Samuel that I would talk to Nicholas (yet again!) about treating others nicely. Samuel also suggested I tape this paper to Nick's wall so he will see it every day! :-) It is a great illustration!!

That is a classic. One for the books for sure. I love it. I love his idea of taping it in Nick's room. How funny! Way to use your words and to write them down for future reference, Samuel.

That's so cute.

Another good love; My daughter said she hates kindergarden. I asked her why? she said because of home work.
I said "Ava you haven't attended kindergarden yet"
