today i am grateful for my son's imagination, independence and heart full of love. as we sat down together to work on his first representational drawing, i gently encouraged him to form a person. a head, some eyes, arms & legs. he lovingly exclaimed "it's you mama!" to my surprise & delight, he continued his drawing. on his own initiative, he added some squiggles in the mid section and joyfully proclaimed "and that's your baby and your belly button!"
