Charlotte’s First [graphite] Pencil.


My daughter recently turned two years old, and she’s always been interested in pens and pencils and notebooks and crayons. Santa brought her some large-diameter pencils for her first Christmas in 2010. I spared Comrades the Cuteness Overload at the time, waiting for when she was ready to actually use them. She’s been “colohing” with colored pencils for a week or so, and she’s stolen pencils from me to “coloh” in my Field Notes on several occasions.

So today we stepped up to a “Big Girl Pencil” — My First Dixon, as it were, which we picked up today while we were out. She had largely worn the point down by Bedtime.

Now I merely delay the Cuteness Overload, which is immanent. Adorable Small Comrades (bka, “kids”) and pencils together — wow.

    1. Thanks, Sean!
      I was just joking with my wife that we might be raising a writer/artist. She’s got ink all over her hands today, and there are pencils/crayons EVERYWHERE! :)

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

    1. Thanks for letting us know; I’ll see what I can do. Truth be told, I’m not crazy about this particular WordPress theme and might go back to the one we had. :)
