Kid Craft: Envisioning 2015

Last year, I tried to explain to Tobias what it meant to make resolutions, and suggested he did the same. He didn’t quite catch on. This year, when I asked him to do it, he said, “Do I have to?”

I thought it’d be more age appropriate if we did envisioning self portraits. A few years ago, my mom gifted him a Create-A-Person pad. There’s one body per page, and they come in white, brown, dark brown, and a more yellowish skin tone. I feel the need to point this out, because when Tobias received it as a gift, he was only seeing the first pages of white bodies, seemed off-put, and then made a frustrated comment about there only being one type of body. So, no worries! The other skin tones are later on in the book.

We had so much fun! I hadn’t drawn in longer than I could remember. There’ll definitely be more art in 2015.

In mine, I expressed the typical: to stop wearing sweatpants, better time manage (hence the watch), get a haircut, and have better confidence in my mothering abilities.

Tobias wants to get bigger muscles, learn to use a bow and arrow, and to grow a beard. At the ripe age of six-going-on-seven, the beard is unlikely. But, what’s the likelihood the gym will stay this busy, anyway?
