I talked with my little guy after his last game.
Me: "I was watching you play and I realized that all of you on the field actually want to play."
Little guy: "Uh, yeah, mom."
Me: "Whenever I got on the field when I was a kid I spent my whole time hoping that the ball (or whatever) never, ever headed my way. You're not like that at all."
Little guy: "When were you on the field?"
Me: "In P.E. class."
Little guy: "That wasn't a choice, mom. Everyone on the football team is choosing to be there because we all want to play."
I think I get it, sort of. I guess it's like how I absolutely love creating art each and every day and my kid hated creating art in the art class he had to take at school. Choice is an awesome thing.
I started a new painting. In the class I'm taking we're now studying Frida Kahlo. I am so excited! I find her absolutely fascinating. Excited to make an attempt at stepping into her painting mind.
|I quickly sketched "Thinking About Death".|
|I added more details and worked on lowering|
her left eye so they'd be more even as they
were in the original painting.
|I roughed in the background. I'm so excited|
to start painting this!
