Magic Marker Monday: For Daddy

James had fun making a card for his Daddy's birthday. He'd watched his Mom and Big Sister make theirs, and knew what to do.
Within ten seconds he had red marker on his fingers, and the inside of his lower right calf -- ???

James loves having his hands outlined. He told me what we should put on the card and I drew them in. Then I held the pen out in front of him, in the middle, to see which hand he would use to grab it (I am obsessing lately with hand-eye-foot dominance lately, as in I don't see it and shouldn't this be a concern? Like I don't have enough to fuss over? Evidently ... maybe not). He reached and grabbed with his left hand. I helped him draw the J and then he finished the rest of his name, saying the letters as he started to draw them.

LOL! I've never been able to figure out how kids get pen marks the places they do when they've been drawing either :D

Yay James! You did a great job with your name -- such a great gift for your dad!
