One of the interesting quirks of having a 6-year-old son with an active imagination is that our appliances become his canvases. We still own the Ikea table lamp he drew on two years ago and it still makes us smile every time we turn it on.
This time, the wife found the floor-standing electric fan we use in my study, in a new state.
Isaac stuck the 3D glasses he found on my desk to the lid of the fan, drew and cut out a nose and mouth, and voila! Fan transformed to a robot.
I have discovered eyes, noses and even tiny paper hands, attached to other things like my iMac and the Ikea baby chair too. And these discoveries are always a delight to find.
The only problem is I keep running out of scotch tape when I need it. Isaac recently apologised to me for using up the last bit of a 3M roll.
I didn't have the heart to scold him and just said, "Papa will buy some more, don't sweat it, dude."
