The Artistic Dog Lover

I took Ethan to his playgroup yesterday at Charlotte’s house. All the mommies had planned for a Little Artist session this time around: Bryan’s Mommy made edible paint of red and blue, and the rest of us brought along paint palettes and paint brushes.

Charlotte’s Mommy had laid her front porch with mahjong paper, and they were just screaming for color to be splashed all over them. When the time came for the kids to start painting, I decided to remove Ethan’s shirt because the weather was pretty hot. Then I garbed him in his Ikea shirt-bib (it was bare-backed, by the way).

Well, Charlotte, Wei Xuan and Bryan eagerly began dipping their paint brushes into their respective paint palettes and started painting on the mahjong paper. Each child had their own sheet to experiment with. But Ethan was not at all interested. Instead, he was VERY amused by Simba, the golden retriever. He stood at Simba’s cage, and giggled happily as Simba allowed Ethan to pet and stroke his fur. Then he would run around to the other side of the cage and laugh again as Simba played along with him.

In the end, Charlotte’s daddy had to take Simba out for a walk in a bid to allow Ethan a chance to explore with the paint. Alas, his attention span was short-lived and after about 5 minutes, Ethan walked to the gate and stood there, presumably waiting for Simba to return from his walk.

It looks like Ethan really loves dogs, and coincidentally enough, the golden retriever is one of my favorite dogs too. Could his love for dogs be fuelled by the fact that he was born in the year of the dog?

maybe it’s time to get him one..:-)

Joyce says: Yeah, one that comes with a house and compound!

normally it wud be difficult for lil ones to concentrate on crafts and arts. thats why it is good to train them to be patient during such play sessions.

Joyce says: Ethan is hardly patient… :P He prefers to run around and cannot sit still, except when watching Baby Einstein!

Is simba your golden ?…….. If not it’s time to get your own golden family member.

Joyce says: Simba is my friend’s golden. Well, we want to but first we got to own a home first :) An apartment is no place for a dog like a golden.

I foresee pets (maybe a puppy?) in your future… Hehehe.

Joyce says: I wish I wish…

If Sze Yi was there, Ethan would have a company :) She’s a dog lover too.

Joyce says: That’s awesome! Maybe you guys should get a dog and a house too.
