My son Parker, who is 5, has recently taken an increased interest in what Daddy does at his job. So, why not use that interest to bond with him? I asked him to draw an alien that I would then color. He did and also drew an alien spacecraft for it to live in. After he went to sleep, I scanned his drawing and colored it in. The excitement in his eyes when he saw it this morning was priceless. We will likely do a whole bunch more of these in the near future. Maybe his twin sister will join in, too.
As I was coloring it, I was trying to imagine what he saw when he drew it. Most of that magical imagination is erased from our minds by the gritty sandpaper we call life. Maybe this will help us regrow a little of it.
