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.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Or under the bed...bunk bed to be precise. Oscar thought it would be fun to cut out portholes & turn his bunk bed into a sub by taping them along the frame. Indeed! This is fun, especially since there are so many trinkets, toys, crafts, etc scattered about Oscar's room it truly is exploration. "Should I draw a submarine today?" I ask. The answer is a resounding yes. Once I have it down on the bag, there is a secondary request for an octopus...you know, to make it real he says.Happy to oblige as Oscar knows this is one of my all-time favorite animals. "Why do you like them mama?" Oscar asks. "So many reasons," I say"but mainly because they are super smart.""And delicious." Oscar replies. Ha! So very true!Happy Wednesday xoxo
