"This is my family but they're skeletons. There's Luca and mommy and daddy and Rohan. And mt 2 cousins because I love them." She pointed to each figure and I made a mental note so that I could upload this later and label each one. She also practiced writing her name at the bottom (she knows the letters, though the order isn't always correct) and drawing hearts.
I sat there with her on my lap, listening to her desrcibe what she had drawn, and my heart ballooned with pride. Listen, I KNOW pretty much every kid will draw a picture of their family at some point, and that family will be a bunch of circles with lines coming out of it. But the thing is: this is my kid and she drew her family. Our family. And I was choked up with pride.
