Time with Mason

This morning, Mason woke up a little early. After getting dressed, we sat at the table and reviewed some of his homework from school yesterday. Once done, he announced that he wanted to draw a picture for his friends, Elliot and Owen. They are twins in Mason's class and today is their birthday.

I retrieved two pieces of construction paper and a box of crayons. He began to draw a picture of each of them and then wrote 'Happy Birthday' at the top of each page, along with each of their names. I just sat quietly and watched. I watched him choose colors for the drawing, create shapes and print letters. All of this done for other children; all of it his idea.

It was some of the best 10 minutes I have spent with Mason in a while.
