Thank you 2017
For smiles I’ve seen
and laughter I shared
This will be my last page for this series. I draw 100 pieces of art. I will continue working on my art, but maybe a different series next year. Thank you for viewing my pages and see you next year.
There is something there
Searching something new is what kids do all the time. They have incredible curiosity to find anything and anywhere. Also, they figure out how to get there. I am totally impressed by their persistence and efforts!
What is this shiny green thing?
it must bring something amazing
Decorated Christmas Tree is something magical. For children’s eyes, it must be a real magic tree especially when they find presents under the tree. I am grown up, but I have always loved Christmas Tree.
I can swing back and forth
on my own!
I have been pushing my son’s back whenever he wants to ride a swing. He simply didn’t know how to get moving. Recently, he finally got it! He is swinging back and forth with his legs. The smile on his face tells me his confidence and satisfaction. For me as a mother, one more step to see my son being independent.
Open the book,
then you will see the world
where you have never been
I moved to a new house about two month ago, and since then there is no TV in the house. It started as a lazy act of postponing mounting a TV on the wall. Then, I notice that my son asks me to read books more often since he doesn’t watch TV at all. So I decided to keep TV in the storage. Books will open the door to the world he has never seen before.
This is how I play with my
ABC flash cards
There is at least one set of alphabet flash cards at home if you have kids. I have one, too. However, I could never use it as it’s supposed to be used. Cards are everywhere on the floor because it’s fun for him to toss them in the air. Then he rolls on them playing with his favorite mini car. That’s how he plays with alphabet flash cards.
I don’t want to wear that shirts
Not that shirts!
Morning is the busiest time and little one can make it even busier by not listening to mother. My son takes a long time to get dressed. He simply comes up with different reason to stay in pajamas. One of reason is not liking certain shirts.
Butterfly on my hand
Great horned owls are calling
it’s story time
We live right next to the woods, and sometimes we hear owls. They seem to be great horned owls which are native to California. Outside is completely dark and quiet, and they sound inviting us to join some late night story time.
