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.

Don't get your hopes up...this blog is Sheen free. We have a milestone weekend ahead - Oscar has his first opening game day tomorrow - his first baseball team. Unlike all of the other kid activities, this one seems monumental - a classic rite of passage that will hold a permanent place in his memories. He has his sights set on a trophy, which is kind of adorable in that it doesn't seem tied to any competitive value. No, he just thinks they're cool & shiny & "like statues" he tells me. Always the visualist. "You're going to be cheering for me, right mama?" he asks as I draw. "Of course! Every game - I'll even make up some rhymes if you want." "Yeah! Um, like what?" This is going to be a long season now that I've signed myself up for lyrics...am open to any ideas so please pass along :) Happy weekend xoxo
