L and I started doing this picture together when he was only 3 and a bit. Every now and then he asks me to get it off the wall and we have another go. Sometimes he tells me what he wants me to draw on it; sometimes he does it himself. Now he's learning to write and will try letters. It's fascinating seeing it evolve and I have just decided that I'll keep an ongoing record of its progress. We did a tiny bit more today, a few squiggles here and there. No doubt (one day soon) I won't be allowed to do anything on it at all and it will become completely his own.
