Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

I simply had to share these words of wisdom, spoken by my five year old great niece. I plead for the understanding of her mother, whose photo and words  I have purloined, and I quote "At one point she thought about putting water over it, and told me  "Artists have good ideas, silly ideas and great ideas. I'm going to do it.".
Could anything be cuter?

The artistic and free spirit genes clearly run riot in the jinksy clan, and we are all the happy beneficiaries of your creativity!

You know, as I come by and read many different writers work today ... well, too many poems have brought tears to my eyes. But this? Ah, only smiles and they are the kind of smiles that are making my cheeks hurt!

Cuter? It's a deep truth! Fabulous painting, too.

She's the real thing, oh yeah!!

Wisdom beyond her years. Thanks also for your comment on my poem and for spotting the errant semi-colon. No idea how it got there, but thanks to you, it's now removed.

Don't ever let anyone dampen that artistic spirit in her! Keep encouraging her to try her ideas-all of them, even the "silly" ones. I hate to see that wonder and curiosity get squashed when kids go to school and learn that there's a "right" way to do things.

Jinksy said...

Lolamouse - with her parents and family around her, there will be no chance of her ever getting 'squished'! Only loved and encouraged...
