Finding His Inner Artist

Standard

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. 🙂

About Heather

I adore my family, writing, books, cats, lazy mornings in bed, and chocolate. I'll never say no to breakfast for dinner, long talks with friends and lazy summer days at the pool with family. I've somehow morphed into a crazy sports mom, a skier and someone who lifts weights. My life is often crazy, always awesome and one I'm so happy to be living!
