The Princess is doing a lot of drawing and writing at the moment. Mostly, she just writes Mama backwards and other random letters (a lot of ls and os). She has drawn a number of pictures of the family and continues to produce abstract works at impressive speed. All of these efforts are “for your office, Mama”. I can barely close my briefcase and my handbag due to the number of folded artworks nestling inside. I tend to cull some of the offerings and select only the very best to adorn my office walls. It was for that reason that I came home the other day to find a furious Princess holding out a number of second tier works of art in indignation. “Mama, somebody put these in the bin!” she said. “Was it you?” she asked furiously. Oh dear. How was I to know that she would go searching in the bin for proof of my iniquity?
Trust me: the office bin is a much safer place… Tetan is a bit older but is going through the same phase (also writing backwards and in an acute ‘bricolage’ mode these days).
You threw them away??!! Bad Mama! Actually, I really struggle with the throwing away thing (as is evidenced by the insides of my house). The Princess might turn out to be a world-famous artist one day and then you’ll be sorry you chucked out some of her early masterpieces. They could be your pension.
I have a huge pile of paintings in the cupboard. I’m just looking for the right time to get rid
Another misunderstood artiste. Sigh.
haha! my niece once made me a “card” a red and green art work done using her mother’s lipstick and some green pencil(it was supposed to be a rose) and I put it in the bin too…she didn’t talk to me for 2 days(until she forgot about it)..glad to see I’m not the only one making such mistakes
