For whatever reason, P had decided he doesn't draw. But he wished he did :) Perfectionist that he is, paper has proved problematic. If he finally attempts a figure his frustration results in the classic rip, wad and toss seen in most movies. (Apparently a truly human reaction and not the dramatic ploy I always assumed it to be.) Feeling for the forests, we went with a chalkboard. And within the first week P made his first real drawing. Its a papa whale and baby whale below rough water and a many flagged pirate ship. There is plankton in front of the Papa's mouth, some swishy finger marks that are microbes and a fishing line. P was so proud he was torn. He didn't want to ever lose his whale (which started with just one eye but was reworked with two the following day) but wanted to draw some more. We decided on a picture of his picture and then he happily erased the board to draw another day....
