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.

Siren Song (aka Hurry Up June)
Spring is taking its sweet-a time getting here, and we are already fast-forwarding to summer this morning. Oscar & I are discussing the weekend plans - baseball opening day, family party & my mermaid costume fitting for the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. "You're going to wear a mermaid costume to the baseball game?' Uh, no. Thinking this wouldn't go very well with the other parents, although it would be memorable. "I'm just going to be measured to make sure the fit is right for the parade Oscar - that is still a few months away." He asks that I draw it so he can talk about it at school, because he too will be in the Mermaid Parade as a ghost pirate, not to be confused with your run-of-the-mill pirate. He is very specific about how the costume needs to look (tattered & spooky) and that he has to wear make up to look dead. Right - working on his costume in tandem - we are desperate for some warm weather & summer hi-jinx. One day at a time I guess :) Happy Wednesday xoxo
