Yesterday was the big O’s first experience with sidewalk chalk. At first he just wanted to eat it, but then realized there was more to it. We had a blast outside, in the shade of the willow, drawing, giggling, and jabbering. I had to practically drag him in… well, I always have to when we’re outside (he even uncharacteristically woke at 4:30 this morning, pointed outside, signed “please” and cried when I said no)… the point is, this outside boy loves sidewalk chalk!
“Look, Mom! Behind my back!” Clearly he’s gaining some confidence in this new skill.
