Smiley face picture for Mommy

We stayed up pretty late last night because Nicholas was being amazing and he also needed to finish all of his supplements and we fell behind. Usually, I wouldn’t care about him missing a few supplements here and there, but he was so great last night that we didn’t want to put him to bed. We have to cherish these moments when they happen, you know?

Anyway, Nicholas asked me to come and color with him at his little table. I asked him to draw me a picture. So, he makes this big oval/circle on the paper – then looks at me and says “eyes” and draws eyes, “nose” and draws nose, “mouth” and draws mouth – and then picks up the paper and says “smiley face picture for mommy” – I could not hold back the tears – he looked at me like I was crazy. Daddy ran over to see what happened and was shocked – he had never done much more than scribble. A circle here and a square there, but nothing so deliberate like this.

Nicholas drew me a smiley face picture. No help. No coaching. All by himself. Wow.

Sure, this would be so insignificant to most people, but the whole scene last night was incredible.
