The other day the kids wanted to draw. Alex always wants to draw with my highlighters even though they are so light that you can't see his work very well.
He worked very hard for about 10 minutes on this one piece of paper and then he brought it to me with this giant smile on his face.
He looked down at his masterpiece and he sheepishly told me that he had drawn a picture of me. My eyes immediately welled with tears because this was the first ever sketch of me made by one of my children and I felt the weight of this moment in my heart.
And then I aksed him to tell me more about the picture and this is what he said:
My heart....he drew my heart.
Happy Mother's Day!
