Today we went to the Honolulu Academy of Arts. The boys love painting and drawing and coloring so much I thought they'd get a kick out of seeing some professional art. They were surprisingly well behaved and seemed to really enjoy it.
When we were in the Hawaiian exhibit I saw a large volcano painting and noticed the artist's first name was Ambrose.
Me: Look buddy! The person who painted this is named Ambrose too!
Ambrose: Whoa!!!!!! (cuddles up to me excitedly and stares at the painting amazed)
Me: Do you think you'd like be an artist too someday?
Ambrose: (pulls away- offended) I already AM an artist!
Me: Yeah that's true! Should we go home and paint some oceans and volcanoes too?
Ambrose: Yeah, except for maybe I don't have all the supplies. I think I need to get more supplies. (Where on earth did he learn the word supplies??)
Me: (a little astounded) Yeah, ok. Let's get you those supplies.
Somebody get this boy some supplies! He is an artist after all.
