Meet my Future Vera Wang

Writing for Mama Kat's Workshop
Prompt Number 2 : 
Based on their personalities, what do you think your children will be when they grow up?

Mama’s Losin’ It

When my daughter, Bea, turned 1, one of my friends gave her a small magnetic drawing slate. Of course, that time, she was too young to use it. But after a few months, she was able to figure out how to use the slate's pen and the shaped magnetic stamps. The first shape she learned to draw was a circle. She'd fill the slate with big circles and small circles. I can still remember her chanting "big circle ..... small circle" until she fills the slate up. Then she'd ask me to erase everything and she'll start over again.

The slate was overused 'coz she preferred that over her other toys. We ended up buying her a bigger and better slate. She then learned how to add eyes, nose and lips to her "big" and "small" circles. 

At the same time, she was exposed to Barbie fairy tales. She loves watching these Barbie videos over and over ... and over ...  As she watches, she keeps an eye on the princesses' dresses. Her drawings evolved and the 'big' and 'small' circles then had frilly dresses.

And now at age 4, she had made dozens of dresses with different designs. Each design is so detailed ... from the sleeves to the skirt's curves and frills.  

I want to capture  every masterpiece she creates but before I get to click the camera, she suddenly erases it and starts with a new one. I bought her a drawing notebook but she prefers making her designs on her  slate. So I figured I'll just let her practice on her slate until she's ready to conquer the world with her designs. 

Here's my future Vera Wang at work: 

Why Vera Wang? Well, if I have to dream ... I have to dream big, right? 

How about your little darling ... who's he/she going be?


  1. She is 4??? My four year old doesn't put arms on people he draws, let alone clothes! I say, look out Vera Wang, you're going down!

    I posted on this prompt, too. But mine wasn't so flattering for my kids :-)

  2. How sweet. I love all the dress designs. I hope she becomes bigger than Vera Wang.

  3. Thank you ... yes she's really just 4 ... I don't know how she does it but she just can control the pen very well and she has creative imagination and she's very keen to designs

  4. That is precious! She certainly does have an eye for detail, too. I'm amazed at how unique each of those drawings are. What a sweetie!

    Good luck with Vera!

  5. just tell me if she wants another drawing slate :) miss bea!

  6. @cat ... you read my blogs!!!!
    If Bea becomes Vera Wang ... it was all because of YOU and the pink slate!
