My daughter is so talented (and certainly not from me!) - this is her latest pencil sketch (@ms.jenocide - I thought you’d like this one!). Check out more of her art and follow her at @zombie_infested_scorpio !
Today was a great day in parenting. I really knocked it out of the park. I cultivated a calm learning environment, engaged in constructive activities, and most important, I as was present as can be. But I can’t help but wonder... Am I setting up unrealistic expectations for myself and the girls? By setting the bar too high, will I simply end up disappointing them in the long run?
Today I met 刘洇竹 (Lyn) the 9yr old art prodigy .
First I met her art which blew me away but then when her mom told me Lyn was the one who painted everything. I was surprised/amazed/and just lost for words. Her mom noticed my admiration and gifted me one of Lyn's books, at this point my shock just escalated. She has her own book! ...she's 9yrs old... Just had to say that again to let it marinate...I'm always saying "age is just a number", but when I actually thought about all the talent packed into this tiny human ... Wow.
