Hello and welcome back to ‘Artist’s Corner’, the bit of my blog that is currently paying tribute to the peerless artistic talents of my 2-year-old daughter.
I say peerless, but in all honesty I’ve never seen any of the art that her peers produce. If indeed she has peers. Can you have peers when you’re only two? I know she enjoys nursery and very much likes spending time with other children. But when she is with other toddlers, I’m never entirely convinced that they’re all exactly on the same page. They may well be playing together but it always looks like they’re playing slightly different games.
I like seeing Little Proclaims interact with other children. She’s obviously having a lovely time when she does. But I can’t help but feel a little rejected at the way she seems to instantly forget I exist. Which always happens when other kids are around. When it’s just Little Proclaims and me, I occupy a near god-like status in her eyes, but introduce just one other child, even a slightly boring rubbish child, and suddenly I’m yesterday’s news.
But back to the art. And this is the second piece in the ‘September Sessions’ collection. I think. Maybe it was the first one she did. Or maybe it was the fifth. I can’t really remember the order she produced them. But this one was the second that I took a picture of.
