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.

The Amazing Spiderman
Actually, Oscar has really been into the Spectacular Spiderman series as of late. You see, depending on your adjective, you are watching a different show...reading a different comic...you get the picture. But at the end of the day, it is our beloved web-slinger with the same band of villains and supporting characters. We are up to the introduction of Venom (a personal fave) so Oscar is pretty stoked, but truth be told, my Spiderman knowledge is somewhat limited compared to my other superhero crushes. Doodle direction this morning over rice krispies and riveted crime-fighting viewing was very specific: "Draw his head & the spider symbol." Ok...minimalist and focused. I can follow. Then he explains he will be using the bag at playtime as the signal that there is crime afoot & Peter Parker will have to exit & return as the costumed hero. Oh - a prop. Love a multi-purpose anything. Happy Wednesday! xoxo
