Art is really all around us our entire lives long. When you're little--those cartoon animated programs and movies are the art that first captivates you.
My favorites have always been, The Little Mermaid and Anastasia. Especially the Little Mermaid... I think I can still recite pretty much the whole thing...and I know I know all the words to each and every song. I mean...if there were a Disney Rock Band game and I would win on Expert on every Little Mermaid song...
Actually when Olivia finally started watching the Little Mermaid--that was fun because I got to watch and sing with her...well actually she doesn't like it when you sing with her sometimes...so I'd have to pretend sing with her. It's been fun rediscovering one of my faves with her.
I also taught Olivia how to hold her crayons. That was a really time afternoon--she likes it when I draw something and then she colors ALLLL over it.
I'm really glad I get to be a part of Art at Any Age with her.
Any day now..maybe any moment now---Oli is going to officially become a big sister. I'm so excited to meet the newest little one. I can't wait to see if she falls in love with Eric like Oli and I did...or if she will ask me to draw sharks like Oli does...
...Another little girl to share art with...the simple joys of a piece of paper and crayons.
