Usually we like to do crafts on the weekend. Around Christmas time we made styrofoam snowmen. Brody’s had a top hat and Evan’s head was at the top of a long bamboo stick (that him neck – Evan said). This past weekend I bought new paints and huge poster board – I thought we could have some fun! Boy, was I right!
These pictures define how different my boys are from each other. In a lot of ways they are very similar – like their whining and nagging. But they are polar opposites. Take for instance, Evan’s Alien (as seen below). There is no rhyme or reason to it, not a single solitary color was used by itself – all colors MUST be used in conjunction with another color.
He gave the alien eyes… so what if they aren’t the same size?
Here’s Brody’s alien. Complete with a top hat and a friend. They must have been attending a formal function.
They also have very different methods for keeping their paint in order. Brody prefers to have a dab of each color. Unless you want to hear whining of intense proportions – do NOT even think about letting the paints touch each other. Notice…
The next exhibit picture is of Evan’s “paint tray.”
Same gene pool? You decide.
