[S] spent seven hours at one of the Child Development Centers (“CDC”) on base yesterday. When we collected her, we were provided a half-sheet telling us what and how much she ate, her activity of the day, and a log of diaper changes.
Imagine our surprise when we were told that [S] put together the ice cream cone (pictured above) as the activity of the day. Personally, I love the colors and shapes. But I’ve been wondering what our daughter did to make it hers. I would like to think she positioned the scoops of ice cream strategically on the cone, but that likely would be wishful thinking. Indeed, I know [S] would be more likely to stick the shapes into her mouth than on a piece of paper.
The second piece of artwork we were given was a fan (pictured below). The artwork on the fan shows all signs of being created by [S] with minimal–if any–assistance.
Regardless of how much–or how little–she did, I know that she contributed somehow to her artwork. And as a proud parent, I can’t help but show off her accomplishments.
Perhaps that’s all that matters.
