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.

Mmm Mmm Octopus
There are letters & then there are letters that give back. One of Oscar's homework assignments last night was to list words beginning with the letters "n" & "o" so...this morning I asked if he'd like to choose one of those words for his snack bag doodle. Despite some other goodies - owl, ostrich, nest - octopus always wins. And rightfully so. We LOVE the octopus around here for myriad reasons - complex nervous system, highly adaptable, strategic hunter & all around cool looking cephalopod. And oh, we like to eat them...often. This is an animal that tastes delicious & can possibly do your taxes. In your face H&R block. Happy Wednesday! xoxo
