> This may bore or amuse some of you, but I just had to tell SOMEONE!
> My 5 year old son Aaron just started using a baseline in his drawings! He
> went through the scribbling stages and then just stayed there for the
> _longest_ time. Then one day he drew a mandella, then the next day he was
> into floating figures. In two days he went from scribbles to figures! Just
> as suddenly yesterday he went from floating figures to detailed drawings using
> a baseline! I find these types of developmental leaps astounding! And I love
> being there to see it all too! (Can you tell I am excited?:-)
> Anyway, now that I look at these stages of drawing my son has been going
> through I can easily see that they are correlated with his emotional and
> physical growth. This was my favorite area of study in college. And now I am
> living it!
> Thanks for letting me rave!!!
