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 can always count on show & tell to influence the morning musing. The letter 'D'...give you one guess what an (almost) 6 year old boy would want. If you said dinosaur, you are spot on. Seriously, I get asked to draw dinosaurs on a regular basis, so this is not a surprise. What impresses me is the extent of species awareness Oscar has, coupled with his knack for nailing one with the appropriate letter. He asked for a duckbill this morning. Another 'D' alright...logical enough. The only trick is, this particular dinosaur has many iterations. I have no idea which one Oscar has in mind. "How's this?" I ask Oscar. "I like it mama, but he looks too happy!" I look at the doodle - he does have a goofy smile I guess. "He's in a super mood. Is there anything wrong with that?" And there it is...Oscar has no response and we will not be late for the B70. Happy Tuesday xoxo
