If you've taken an art history class, you might have heard of the artist Robert Rauschenburg, who made some "eraser drawings" at one point in his career. Chris and I used to crack up at this video clip, from the documentary, Painters Painting, where he talks about erasing a Willem de Kooning drawing (we're dorks, I know, please bear with us).
(you're welcome dear husband, I know you're glad I dug up that clip)Ah-hem, back to my post. As much as I thought I knew about boys--snips and snails and puppy dog tails, all that---I really find myself swimming in new territory every time. Who knew that my son would rather tip over the mini basketball hoop onto the kids in a play area than shoot the balls?
However, I do try to keep on the sunny side, and remind myself how lucky we are to have such an exuberant child, albeit one who . Despite his behavior, he really is sweet and considerate, being careful of the smaller kids (usually!) and waiting his turn without my cajoling on things like the slide.
Desi's daughter Raileigh, taking her around The Boneyard. Something about that "Lucky Charms" shirt, I guess.
P.S. Thanks Desi for sharing the photos! And, no, I don't dress him in that Lucky Charms shirt exclusively--it was pure coincidence.
