A simple expression of love made by my toddler son at his playschool on Valentines Day. When I went to pick him up that day at the end of the session, he walked out the door with this candy stick in his hand and a smile on his face and very proudly handed it over to me. I know he still does not understand the concept of Valentines Day, but he was mighty proud to have made his mamma something at school. Ah the simple pleasures of life.
Back in January this year, Ronav’s grandparents gifted him an easel, canvas papers and paints. We spent one Saturday afternoon creating this finger painting. He painted the entire thing himself with a few inputs from me. At that time he had little knowledge of what the roots of trees really do. So when I explained the roots help in anchorage and nutrition, he made them round and big to give his trees maximum nutrients. He also painted two suns. When I asked him the reason for doing that, this was his explanation “One sun is up in the sky to give us light and one sun is close to my trees to help them grow stronger and taller quickly.” The imaginative minds of young kids! Needless to say that we have saved this one!
