Regarding Creativity | Free Printable

Jul 30, 2013

I look at Louis with those big ole’ blue eyes and can’t help but wonder what the future holds for him.  At one-month shy of his 3rd birthday, kiddo has already shown signs of creativity beyond the realm of most adults I know.  Based upon that alone, I can already guess a few things about teenaged/adult Louis.

  • Sleep will be the last priority.  (We’ve already seen flashes of this.  Practically since day one.)
  • Instead of looking at something in a store and simply wanting to buy it, he’ll be thinking about how he can recreate it or make it better himself.  (Bennett and I are super guilty on this one.)  :cough:theskirtsikeepmaking:cough:

  • Simple tasks of housework/chores will ALWAYS be second to creating.  No joke, our house is allllllways a disaster zone.
  • Friends will always be asking for advice on things.  Which is totally great.  But sometimes they have this idea that you’re more of a genius than you actually are and you can’t answer the question or solve the problem.

  • Parents are a tough sell.  We won’t always understand what his goals/dreams/wishes are but we will always be supportive of it.  Always.
  • He will struggle.  He will want to give up.  And there will be days when he wants to hide under a rock and avoid the world because he feels like a complete failure.  He will fail.  But there will always and forever be a spark in him that pushes him onward and upward and it won’t ever die down.
  • And finally – if he’s anything like his Daddy and Momma, he will NEVER be able to answer the question: “What do you want to be when you grow up/get older?”  Because that question is just plain ridiculous.  We want to be EVERYTHING.

Sound familiar to any other creative minds out there?

Now, to the thing that I teased you with about on Facebook/Instagram for the last few days.  A freebie printable piece of art for your walls!  Woohoo!  {click the picture below to download the PDF.}

Hope your week is awesome as ever.

    I hope so! If you think of it — send me a picture of it on your wall. I'd die to see something I've done in someone's house. 🙂
