Let me just start off by saying that I think Holden is incredibly bright. Since he isn’t in preschool, i’m doing a lot of work with him at home with letters and colors and numbers and all the things he’d probably be learning if he was in school- and I think he’s doing a fabulous job.
That being said- last night I was showing all the work he’s done over the past few days to Thomas, since Thomas is never home to see Holden in all his glory, and I noticed some things I hadn’t seen before.
Apparently while I wasn’t looking, Holden decided to do a little work on his own… and it is hilarious.
Usually when he’s working in his books, I keep an eye on him so that if he has any questions or is doing something that needs to be corrected or worked on some more, I can help him out. It would appear that when i’m NOT around, he takes some serious artistic license with his work.
Allow me to show you:
This is a page where you are supposed to circle the square shapes. Tell me why there is one gigantic monolith and a bunch of triangles scattered about? Perhaps he’s remembering his trip to DC and reminding me that I refused to walk another half a mile to take him to see the monument?
Here, my friends, is the page of triangles. That little creature that looks like it did a backflip the wrong way and landed on its head? I have no idea what that is.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a giant green blimp and squares falling from the sky!
It’s RED mommy, didn’t you know that? DERRRRRRRR
I guess to a 4 year old, these two “purple”s look exactly the same. To me, it looks like he was telling me he needed to take a wiz.
YEY for yellow and gangrene bananas!! The excitement was uncontrollable.
I think Holden might be obsessed with the show “Party of Five” That Neve Campbell, some guys just can’t resist.
He must be a super genius if he already knows binary code.
Oh Holden, you never cease to make me giggle. Especially late at night when i’ve had a few drinks.
I'm either "I HAVE 3 FRIES LEFT DON'T TOUCH MY PLATE!" or "Please take this so I can't eat any more of it!" There is no in-between.
Dear people writing articles on ways to get siblings to get along, I'll save you the time. The answer is "Don't let them play together"

I've gotten to the point where I'd let my kids summon a demon with a Ouija board before I'd let them play Monopoly together again.
