Sam is in love with glue projects. He would glue shapes onto paper all day long if I’d let him. It’s interesting to see the colors he chooses. Today, he chose blue paper as his canvas and glued orange shapes onto it. Last night, it was yellow on yellow. It’s always two colors, never three, even though he has the option of more colors with the tow-color paper. I think it’s very toddler of him.
We sit and talk about things while he glues. He tells me all the things Daddy says — he remembers everything — and what kind of shape he wants next. He tells stories about the shapes. He wonders about things. I get a glimpse into his mind. It’s fascinating. And there’s no place that I would rather be than gluing construction paper shapes at the kitchen table with my little Sam.
