My 4.5 year old daughter, Reeva, is very much fond of painting and coloring. Since she was 1.5 years old she could hold crayons and scribble. When she was 2 years old and started going for playschool, her teacher once called me personally and told me this incident, She said she was distributing a paper with various shapes outline drawn and giving crayons to everyone and while many of them could not hold crayon properly Reeva already completed coloring those shapes!! I think its her god's gift and I try my best to encourage her for the same.
I have started to collect and preserve ample of her paintings but this particular one is my favorite and very close to my heart, She did this paining few months back around August 2016, It was my usual tiring day back from office and i was super tired, as I came back home Reeva came jumping to me and wanted to play tea party set with me but i was super tired and told her mumma is tired please give me some time to freshen up and I will play with you till then you paint something for me (painting is the only thing that works for her on those times when I'm super tired and want her to play alone) I handed over her set of crayons and her drawing book, and I got busy with my routine house chores trying my best to complete all the stuff soon so I could play with her. After some time she came jumping to me and showed me this painting saying "mom look mom look" and I turned back and saw this paining.... before i could react or say anything she said "Look mom sun is smiling and sun is happy with so many colours!!" My mood was instantly lifted up looking how innocently she painted the smiling face of sun adding so many colours around... her innocent way to make me smile was clearly visible, I left everything and hugged her thight :) I'm surely going to frame this picture for her to treasure.
