My (almost) four year old son is obsessed with painting pictures of concert stages with all the stage lights on them. My mom took my son to a concert in the park over the summer at the city hall, and ever since then, he has became almost obsessed with anything and everything that involves concerts, and he relates back to the concert thingy that my mom took him to. He will paint pictures and pretend that they are concerts and then he will sing while he is painting pretending he is at the concert. He does this almost every time he paints. We tell him to paint something else, but he says he doesnt know how to paint anything else, so we will show him how to paint other things. Also he loves to take two flashlights and play with them, pretending that they are the spotlights on the stage at a concert. What I am concerned about is is this just imaginative play, or is he obsessed with this???
Also, he loves sprinklers. Anytime we are on a walk, he will constantly look for the little black sprinkler heads on neighbors grass and point them out. Over the summer he begged almost everyday for us to turn our sprinklers on, just so he could see them move back and forth and pop in and out of the ground. I don't know if this is normal, but i have compared him to my friends kids (who are all girls), and I thought maybe its just a boy thing.
Third, he loves watching spongebob on tv and refuses to watch anything else most of the time and will through a huge tantrum if he can't watch it when it is his tv time.
Is any of this just normal boy stuff ( i her all about little girls, cuz all of my friends have them and no boys!!!), or is this somthing I should be concerned about. I have not brought any of this up to his doctor yet, maybe becuase I don't want to sound like an idiot if it really is nothing.
