A Child’s View of Things
May 12, 2011 by Steve Costello
My daughter came to me to share her fancy drawing.
I could see her looking at me longingly, seeking approval of her artistic efforts.
I struggled to excavate something positive to say about the blue and yellow mess that looked like a pterodactyl atop a pineapple. I didn’t want to crush her feelings so I simply said, “Honey, that’s very colorful.”
“Thanks Dad! I knew you liked to watch SpongeBob with me, so I wanted to show you Patrick getting a piggy back ride from SpongeBob but, I ran out of pink and used blue for Patrick instead.”, she said.
I had a very hard time keeping a straight face, as my lips wanted to form a smile.
Always be careful what you say to young children because, you never know where their fertile minds will take them.
