A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

>> Wednesday, February 11, 2009

So Gabriel (age 5) has been going through an interesting stage lately. He's been expressing his dissatisfaction with Casey and me by drawing us "angry" pictures. He started by making angry faces at us...when we nixed that he decided he would roar at us...when we nixed that his last resort was to draw it out. I guess you could call that creative thinking?! Maybe he'll be an artist like his daddy? We've gotten quite a few of these beauties lately (which of course we're saving for future fun) and it's pretty obvious when he's preparing one as he'll go directly to the art table and quietly work there for a few minutes. Then he'll present "the punisher" (either Casey or me) with his angry picture and explain to us why we're receiving it. I've posted one for your enjoyment...we're sure getting a kick out of them (unbeknownst to Gabriel, of course).

We particularly love the claws!

This is even better than you explained to me. I love the eyebrows too.
This is priceless.

This is very good! I think you do have a budding artist on your hands... Casey must be proud! Also, from a counseling perspective... This is a very helpful and healthy way for Gabriel to be learning to express his feelings! Way to go B!
