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.

Hopefully you weren't expecting a doodle of BYU's point guard.We are dealing with a different kind of madness this morning...weather madness to be exact. Oscar asked me why it's snowing again. Great question! "Well sweet, remember the saying about March? In like a lion & out like a lamb?" He nods - he recalls. "But the flowers were starting to bloom." Sigh...this saddens me too. He requested I draw the lion, a.k.a. winter's evil grip, on his bag. I was tempted to draw the majestic beast eating a lamb, but reconsidered when I thought of the audience. I'll wait until he's in the second grade for that rendition I guess. And voila - one king of the jungle. "I love it." Oscar replies. "Tomorrow can you draw a lamb?" Hmmm...let's check on that forecast before making a decision. We may not see a cuddly lamb until April. Happy Thursday xoxo
