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.

Rock You Like a Hurricane
You can never get enough prehistoric goodness...at least around here. We dedicated our netflix streaming viewing to national geographic this weekend, landing on fascinating shows about giant arthropods from, oh, about 390 million years ago. There were a few candidates on Oscar's mind this morning when I asked about the snack bag - dragonflies, cockroaches, millipedes. But clearly the sea scorpian made the greatest impression. It was over 8 feet long & pretty much ate everything available, crushing all predators & prey. Yeah! Giant Sea Scorpian - you rock. Too bad in the past few million you've shrunk to a desert dwelling mini-you, but hey, Oscar notes - people are still afraid of you. So there you go. Happy Monday xoxo
