Every school day my son requests his doodle...the one I draw on his snack bag. At times elaborate, whimsical, topical, but mostly just whatever he is into at the moment. I am NOT an artist, but indulge this request each day for fun. This is a daily musing about his requests.

I am the...Batman
February is chock full of events and holidays. This week alone entails two holidays and a birthday (Oscar's), so there has been plenty of fun filled activity. Yet...Oscar wakes this morning with his all time favorite day on his mind - Halloween. "How long until Halloween?" "About 8 months pumpkin." "How many days?" "256." (do not be impressed - I had to look this up) "Can you draw something for Halloween on my snack bag?" Hmmm...I have spring on my mind and was thinking I would go with something a little lighter, but hey. "How about I draw Batman since that's who you are going to be?" "YEEEESSSSS!" Super. And yep, we have this already decided for next year. Oscar is Batman, I am Catwoman, there are friends involved that will fill in the landscape with colorful villains, perhaps an ally or two. This was decided upon on November 1st - we don't waste time in planning around here. No blooming trees, but today is starting out ok. This will sustain my ongoing quest-for-Bruce-Wayne fantasy all day, and Oscar will chat up his classmates about the next great holiday - only 256 days to go! Happy Wednesday! xoxo
