Ollie seems to have had a bit of a breakthrough on the drawing front.
Up until now, he’s always just drawn squiggles all over the paper, which he then interprets for us later. Every once in awhile some vaguely recognizable shape emerges, but then it’s hard to tell if it was intentional, or if he recognized the likeness himself and claimed retrospectively that the ink blot was actually Whistler’s Mother.
And then, all of a sudden, he drew a person:
“Goldilocks with bloody spots and feet with toes”
It’s not like it happened little by little, he just all of a sudden drew something recognizable. There is a mouth, nose, and eyes. He picked the right hair color. And it’s even anatomically correct, in the sense that if you were crippled with only 4 toes on one foot and 3 toes on the other, you’d be pretty clumsy, and probably covered in bloody spots.
Also, I can’t remember the story exactly, but I’m pretty sure Goldilocks was mauled by bears.
