“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2016.”
Arthur has been trying to master ‘rock and roll’ since he was first introduced to it at a gig in early summer.
At least once a day, when he is bubbling over with enthusiasm and excitement, he will pause, and concentrate, and try to manipulate his fingers into shape before asking in frustration for help to make the iconic horns sign.
We’ve talked him through the process, which fingers to fold in and which to hold up straight, and then on Friday, as we were sitting down for family sushi at the end of a long week, he finally cracked it for himself: with his right hand first, and then immediately with his left.
He was so immensely proud of himself; sometimes it really is the little things.
