feelings

April 4, 2009

A couple of months ago, I found Roan in his room. Unlike most times, he was not busy playing, making a mess, or jumping on his bed. I looked into the room and saw him looking into a mirror. He was making faces and saying what the faces were expressing…”I mad” and then a mad face. “I sad” and then a sad face…and so on. He kept at it for several minutes. I learned later that they were learning about feelings at school.

I asked him to show me his feelings a couple of weeks ago and he happily obliged.collage¬†BTW…it’s hard to tell, but from top to bottom and left to right, it is: mad, sad, surprised and happy. I have to say, sad is truly pathetic.
