I wanted to show you another piece that I did a while back (I still did a new maze yesterday!!) It was a beginning for me and my comfort to make real things into mazes. I was very proud of this.
One day I came downstairs to find that my 2-year-old decided to make some minor adjustments. He took a sharpie to it and covered the majority of it with his own lines. Needless to say the maze didn’t work anymore.
My first reaction was anger in his destruction of my “possession” and how he could have done it. But before I even screamed at him I realized the excellence it what he was trying to do. He had watched me work at that maze for hours and felt that he to could create something like daddy. Although frustrating it was a good experience in understanding the importance of people over possession.
However, since then he has been given his own art supplies and paper to work with so that it never happens again!
