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.

Love is in the air...
While not a fan of Valentine's Day personally, the kids seem to like it, including mine. Oscar has been lavishing me with pink & red heart-shaped cards all week long in preparation for the holiday. This morning as he enters consciousness via gulping down the requisite chocolate milk, I ask what he'd like on the bag. "Draw love." Love, eh? "Oscar, a little heavy for a chilly Wednesday morning don't you think? How about I draw a spider?" He looks puzzled. "Draw something with love mama. You know, those cupids or something." So many things are going through my mind at the moment...truthfully I would love to go full blown expression on this very topic. But then there are the considerations: 1. limited time 2. limited skill 3. multiple concepts 4. G-rated audience. Yeah, better keep it simple. Couple of doves & a big 'ole heart should do it. Have a tender & affectionate day ;) xoxo
