Z attended the very first birthday party of his classmate in school last week. He was pretty excited last night after I told him it was going to be Mika’s birthday the following day. I suggested to him that we write her a birthday card. Z protested, “But I don’t know how.” True enough, Z was born in the digital age and I think he has never laid eyes on a birthday card. So after convincing him that I can teach him how he settled on his chair. I pulled out a bond paper and folded it in half. I then instructed him to draw his school and his classmates which he has done many times on the megasketcher before. He was insistent that he did everything – from the drawing to the coloring and finally to the note inside that simply read, “Dear Mika, Happy Birthday! Zyke” I’m kicking myself now for not taking a picture. My little baby’s really grown up now. sigh.
