a quote from my family, once a week, every week.
the kiddo standing by his papa looking at this large oil painting at the art gallery of nsw. I showed him the link to the painting just now. this is what he said.
me: remember this?
kiddo: yes. (pauses. thinking.) it's the same battle where humpty dumpty fell off the wall.
he also joined the other finalists in receiving a certificate presented by richard morecroft. (who, as an aside, I watched on the abc news every single night of my life growing up.)
it's super important to me that the kids feel I love them and am proud of them for who they are, not for what they do. but it was definitely a proud moment to see him acknowledged for his art. also, I was really pleased for him. he loves doing his drawings so much.
I asked him what his favourite part of the evening was. catching the train with the family? eating at the gallery with the grandparents? seeing the paintings? he said being presented with the award. (and here's his reaction when he found out he won.)
