Bud-ding Artist

Bud really enjoys being creative and doing artistic endeavors. When I broke out a new box of 96 crayons today that contained both metallic and gel crayons... well, he couldn't resist the creative urge that befell him. To my delight, he spent a good part of the day drawing.

I was loving what he was doing and was impressed with all of the drawings he showed me. And then he showed me this one:

Our conversation went a little something like this:

Me: "What a great picture, Bud!"

Bud: "Thanks, Mom"

Me: "Erm.... so.... what's the green thing between his legs?"

Bud: (with a huge smile) "That's his chin!"

Me: (with relief) "Of course it's his chin! Now that is a fabulous chin!"

Bud just beamed and went back to producing pictures. As the day went on, his pictures developed and changed. He added arms and ears, then eyebrows and I saw lots of different colored chins. After watching his sister, Pen, Bud added hair.

First girl hair...

... then boy hair.

Here's a really fancy girl with eyebrows and ears (or are those earrings?):

Later in the afternoon, Bud even played with playdoh, creating this incredibly cool elephant:

It was a great day full of art and fun. I can't wait to see what else Bud produces!
