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.

It's spring (although temperature-wise here in Brooklyn it's kind of evil at the moment) and we LOVE plants. We get pretty excited by them, especially beautiful flowering ones. Oscar & I spend quite a bit of time in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden when weather kindly permits. I came across this awesome specimen last night, combining two of my favorite things (bat + flower = amazing!) & I couldn't wait to show Oscar. His immediate response this morning - draw that. Ok! Clearly Georgia O'Keefe I am not, but we were both pleased enough with the rendering. Oscar is looking forward to telling his classmates about a cool new flower - he wishes they hadn't started their science fair seeding because "this is the plant he'd like to grow" he exclaims. And me? I have plenty of ideas about this gorgeous thing too...stay tuned :) Happy Tuesday! xoxo
