Xavier's new phrase


At the mother and toddler group today. ‘Would you like to play with the bricks?’ , ‘I think not’. How about joining in with the singing? ’ , ‘I think not’. ‘ Wouldn’t you prefer orange squash?’ ‘I think not’.

Somehow 'i think not' sounds so much more polite and grown up than "Noooooooooooo."
He has learned good manners even in his contrariness.

I love that you do quick figure sketches all the time. I'm so inspired. They are so accurate, and interesting to look at--capturing something of the movement that a photo just cant.

Karen, his endearing phrases make up for the times he throws major tantrums (the last one in the supermarket with a box of eggs).
Christina, people, particularly people I know are a magnet for me - I think it was looking through old photos and finding that the tasteful beautifully composed scenic shots were so much less interesting than a blurry snapshot of of a long dead relative. I'm just so glad that I've started drawing my family - I've missed too much time already.
