Charlie woke up this morning to reveal he had Chicken Pox! Yipppee!
I envisaged a day(or several) of playing board games, sitting and distracting him while dabbing on baking soda paste….
But after leaving him with his drawing pad and felts I returned to find him designing a new NZ flag. He has continued, all day now on to his 4th design.
There has been some discussion, in the media and around the dinner table, as there often is when an election is coming up about a new flag….
Design 1: Kiwi, Silver Fern, Southern Cross
Design 2 : No Kiwi….
Design 3: Still the Southern Cross with Silver Ferms
Mmmm, the fourth design is looking interesting too…different….
A big part of this has been a chart accompanying each design and everyone who has been here today has been asked to tick a like/dislike column and add comments and ideas.
Even in the spotty and scratchy space he is in, his imagination is on fire. He has just had a fever for 2 days prior and this is a common thing to come out of a fever bursting with new ideas.
Very exciting and, handily destracting too….
