#1 has been interested in letters (sending and more importantly receiving them) for as long as I can remember. We got a lovely one yesterday with stickers and pictures cut out for the boys.
On Sunday mornings from 7-9 we listen to the kids radio show with Finn (the host). It's part music and stories, part talk back for kids. #1 often rings up for a chat on air. I'm always a teeny bit apprehensive that he might say something embarrassing or inappropriate! Especially as we have various friends who listen too. #1 told Finn (and all the listeners) all about their new bunk beds, then told him that he was going to write him a letter.
After their chat he got the twistable crayons out and got stuck in. He told me what he wanted to write and I wrote it on a piece of paper for him to copy. Then he drew Finn a special monster drawing. Monsters are his favourite thing to draw at the moment. Recently we made stuffed paper monsters using shredded paper and the sewing machine. I'll do a post on that some other time. He wanted the monster to be angry (check out the mono brow) and struggled a bit with the lips. I think all of his drawings are cool though, I love kids artwork and am slightly biased towards my own sweeties.
