All the while, Ryan’s drawing makes no resemblance of any kind. They are all circles, lines, dot-dotss, and some other funny shapes figures. Biasa la.. kids this age. They all looked the same to me although he would tell us this is daddy, mommy, kakak, cat, Thomas, etc etc…
Then last night he caught me by a huge surprise. He was drawing on a piece of art paper on the table next to me when he suddenly screamed out ‘Mommy, mommy, see!!‘. I was actually just next to him and yet he had to scream. Kids.. gosh they get excited so easily. I took a glance and got a shock myself and ‘WOW’! Short of screaming.
I couldn’t believe my eyes. Finally it’s something meaningful. I asked Ryan on purpose what did he draw. He replied “This (is) mommy, the same, got eyes, got mouth“. Well, it’s no picture perfect, no Pablo Picasso material. His drawing showed me with no hair, no ears, no hands and legs, obviously na-ked too with airport bodyshape (text me if you do not know what’s airport bodyshape ) but then again, it’s PRICELESS because it is a drawing of me from my ‘jui ngoi’ (beloved). So mighty cute!
Later.. I asked Ryan to draw a picture of Daddy. He scribbled here and there refused to cooperate; obviously ‘kembang’ (on cloud nine) from the compliments I gave him earlier. Well, sorry Daddy. Looks like your son cannot remember how you look like. So no drawing of you.
Instead, he drew this………
Ryan said this is Peacock (we saw four big ones when we were on vacation last week) but I think it looks more like a snail
