My oldest two both have things they love to do. For Charly, it is drawing. She has really gotten excited about writing the names of our family members, and she has started to copy other pictures and teaching herself to draw different objects.
This is a picture of a car drawn by an older child:
And this is Charly's version:
She was so proud, and I was too. It was her first attempt at a car, and I'm sure she'll work on perfecting it. She really has mastered the flower and her name. I wish I had a picture to show, but I don't. Anyway, I'm excited to encourage her in her passion for drawing.
And for Cobb, it's climbing. The other day we went to Lifetime to swim, and then let Cobb climb. He had a great time, climbed 3 different routes, and persevered more than I have ever seen him persevere before. Here's a picture:
As a mom, it's great to see my kids excited about something. Who knows how their hobbies and likes will change over time, but whatever they are, I look forward to them.
