Whether it’s a scribble, a human stick drawing, a cartoon character sketch or a landscape painting, our children creates the most beautiful, exciting, priceless work of Art. Each piece mirrors pureness and innocence. Each piece brings forth happiness and youthful, bright optimism. Each piece takes us to a magical, fun world where we can build anything our imagination wish to create.
Tired from a busy day at work, I sat down on the sofa and joined my 8-year old as he watched his favorite Disney channel series. Out of the blue, he grabbed his notebook and scattered his colored pencils on the coffee table. The last few days he’d been sketching Minecraft characters and I thought he would add more characters to his collection. He sat close to me and started his drawing. I noticed he kept looking at my face, my clothes then started counting the buttons on my shirt. I asked him, “What are you doing? Do I have something on my face?” Smiling he replied, “I’m making a Minecraft Dad.” I tried to look at his drawing but he covered it with his hands and said, “Don’t look. It’s not done yet.” Curious I asked him, “Is that a new Minecraft character?” He didn’t answer. He was too engrossed with what he was doing. When he was done drawing he flipped the notebook towards me and said, “Look, this is you. You’re the Minecraft Dad! Do you like it.” Happily, I answered back,”Wow! That is really good. Great job!” I gave him a hug and a kiss on his head and said, ” Thank you. I love it!”
The next day while waiting for my wife and son to wake up, I made my usual cup of coffee. As I drank my coffee, I looked at my son’s Minecraft Dad drawing and said to myself, “That’s one of the most beautiful Art I’d ever seen. It’s not only a work of Art but an Art done with a lot of love…for me.” Priceless? Absolutely!
Three pictures. One unforgettable “our moment” father and son story. It feels three times awesome being a Minecraft Dad.
Thank you for sharing your day with me. Hope you enjoyed my version of this week’s photo challenge called “Threes.” Next post, we’ll have a Mardi Gras blog Party and everyone’s invited.
