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).
