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.

The Neither Itsy Nor Bitsy Spider
Well, winter break is over...back to the grind. This also means Oscar's extensive birthday celebration has come to a close, sigh. We had some laughs for sure...like tarantula racing. Yep, Oscar has a new obsession with eight legs. It's a supremely cool animal, no doubt. What began as an awesome birthday gift from his friend spun into several more arachnid-focused items including books and accessories for aforementioned toy. I regaled Oscar with stories of a former boyfriend's pet named Bella and we watched a documentary on the giants of Mexico. So this morning an homage to our hairy friend by request of course, followed by four and a half minutes of begging for a tarantula pet of his own. "Um, Oscar...I don't think the guinea pig is down." Oscar is puzzled. "I'm sure Saturday would love to have a friend." So I guess he didn't absorb the feeding bits we watched in the documentary on Netflix? Thank goodness for youtube...I can nip this right quick before school. Happy Monday ;) xoxo
