I'd Say That Looks Happy

Today, Marguerite and I spent the day in our bathing suits and worked on art projects. Anyway, inspired by the smileys on a Hi5 video that was playing on YouTube (Juegos - Listo o no), Marguerite announced that she was going to draw a happy face. We had a huge illustration board on the floor that she could go crazy with. She picked up a marker and made her first attempt, saying, "Here's a happy face, oops, that looks angry, " and she looked up at me to demonstrate an angry face. She kept on trying until she got the mouth right.

Naturally, I had to record the moment via video and voilĂ . She's using her left hand here to draw, but Marguerite is still very much ambidextrous. I'm hoping the trait will stay. :) She's also saying something here that sounds like snowcone. I think it has something to do with "Cars" the movie, but since I have yet to see it, I can't be sure.


Next time, I'll post scenes from our attempts at piano lessons.

@Maricris: And I know how creative you are! That's certainly my hope for Marguerite. :)
@kikamz: Thanks. It was probably more exciting for me than it was for her, lol.
