Art Attack

Nita says, KAYA!

I fondly remember this guy in Nickelodeon who hosts the show “Art Attack”. I love the way he puts together ordinary items to form an ingenious work of art. Well, when my daughter drew on the wall with a yellow crayon, he was the first thing that came to my mind. Sam’s barely 2 yrs old, but I can already see that she has the same artistic interest like me. Being the consenting stage mother that I am, I intend to give her all the opportunity to artistically express herself – just as long as it is not on the walls of our house. LOL. I believe this is one of the thrills of having a child, that you are able to mold and support your kids to meet their full potentials. I can’t wait to see her bloom in the coming years. For now, I shall content myself in scrapping her everyday antics. Hope you like my entry as much as I enjoy doing this page. Thanks for viewing :D

Journaling Reads:
Sam woke me up one morning from a blissful slumber and said, “Mama, pi-sel”. I mumbled, “Yes-yes, darling” and immediately went back to sleep. A few minutes later, she nudged me again and said, “MAMA, PI-SEL!” showing me a yellow object on one hand and a torn page of a coloring book on another. Realization immediately dawned on me and I sharply turned to the wall behind the bed. There, in all its glory, is my daughter’s own rendition of the Sistine Chapel! I couldn’t help but laugh as she innocently laughed with me. Inasmuch as I hate to be the sour puss in the family, I handed her a baby wipes and she eagerly helped me clean up her very first work of ART.
