My little artist

Josh has figured out a way to vent his frustrations without ending up in time-out. Yesterday he was playing outside with his cousin Jenny. He had already been in time-out once for hitting Jenny. A few minutes later I heard them fighting again. Josh came storming in the house and slammed the door. He sat at the kitchen table and started drawing. Suddenly I hear this wicked giggling coming from Josh. He walked over to me,said "mom,check it out!",and showed me this drawing.

It's a picture of himself kicking Jenny. Josh is on the left with the big smile on his face and Jenny is on the right,falling down with a frown on her face. He laughed over this picture for five minutes. Then he seemed to feel better so he went back outside. Technically I couldn't put him in time out for a mean drawing. I have to give him props for creativity.

Oh, that made me laugh! Way to go Josh for figuring out an appropriate (and creative!) vent to his frustrations. :-)

Thats Josh. He is so funny. LOL

Kimberly & Hank said...

LOL, that's hilarious. Especially with the wicked laugh.

Yeah, definitely keep it. Hank's mom kept a lot of his drawings and wrote what Hank said they were. They are the cutest things in the world.

I'm metally drawing a picture right now of me kicking the cheese out of a bunch of IRS agents and a few of my more unruly paper customers.

Ahhhhhh, much better.

Your son is a genius!

I love it! Good for him for figuring out a way to vent. I mean without screaming at everyone and throwing things at the wall. Not that I do that or anything...

I think I'm going to follow Josh's example and draw pictures when I am mad at DH. ;)
