Mom was looking through the new Christmas coloring book I got her. She looked at this page, and said, "Ooh, he's sneaky." Sure enough, that reindeer does have a sneaky expression on his face.
That reminded me of other times she has attributed emotions to pictures in her coloring books. I found a couple more examples.
He's grumpy. She also once told me that was her dad. Oddly enough, he does bear a resemblance to my grampa.
I've read that AD patients are very in tune to body language and expressions, and have found that true with Mom. Sometimes I think Mom is always happy, she is just reacting to me if I am having a bad day. I have to tell myself, smile, smile, smile even if I don't feel like it.
I'm just amazed that she can see emotions in a coloring book drawing.
