Who is the best painter?

My 5-year-old daughter asked me last night:

"I'm going to draw a frog. Can you draw it, too?"

"Sure."

We started drawing without looking at samples.

"I want to draw it, too!"

My 7-year-old son also joined us.

We also drew a monkey, a cat, a fox and the sun.

It was unexpectedly difficult to draw with only my imagination.

I thought they were better painters than me!




After that, my son was drawing something eagerly.

"Mom! Look at this. I drew how water circulates. It is only my guess. First, mud is removed from ditchwater. Then it is cleaned by air and wind. Then it is used at the bath and the washroom of my house. And..."



"Wait a minute! Why did you want to draw this picture? Are you interested in it?"

"Yeah. It's interesting!"

I was really surprised by him.

As a child, I had never been interested in such a thing.

Boys are completely different from girls.

They are interesting for me like an unknown world.

  1. Hello Kumi-san,

    Another fun read. I remember being taught about the water cycles when I was in school. I did find it very interesting at the time but you can never be sure what information from childhood becomes useful when you get older.

    The worlds need more hydrologists and climatologist to fix climate change. Jobs in the sciences are very good jobs to have.

    Here is a list of the issues found with the post:

    1. Thank you Terry.
      You remember being about the water cycles!
      When I was in elementary school, we made a field trip to a water purification plant.
      But I only remembered it was boring for me.
      Thnak you so much!
