Finding His Inner Artist


Prior to this school year, Scorch hasn’t shown a bit of interest in arts and crafts stuff. Sports, balls of any kind, slides and swings- yes. Crayons, chalk, paints- not so much.

So imagine my surprise when he starts drawing people on our driveway with chalk each morning when I’m loading the Bean in the car. A head, two eyes, hair, arms, hands (with 3 fingers), legs, feet (with 2 toes), nose and a smiling mouth. Perfect! Except that some of the people have also have an extra small line coming down from in-between their legs.

Being the clueless idiot I am, I asked him this morning what that extra line was for.

“It’s a penis- so you know who’s a boy.” he says to me.

“Oh. So the ones without that line are girls then?”

“Yeah- only I need you to teach me how to draw a vagina because I have no idea.”

I’m still laughing 12 hours later. 🙂
