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.

Wake Up Dead
Nothing says spring like a cemetery, eh? Let's consider the damp chilly temperature, grey skies, and underlying Easter message about resurrection for a moment, shall we? It's all coming together now, right? Actually, we just really dig cemeteries. And zombies, monsters, etc...those that know us know. Oscar has been busy orchestrating playdates in his custom-made cemetery (a gift from Santa), and we've been doing some spring landscaping (i.e. dead floral arrangements for the tombstones), so no surprise that he's asked for a rendering this morning on the bag. I'm just grateful he didn't ask for the religious tomb-scene he's been detailing the last couple of days as part of his upcoming holiday learning...not sure how that would have turned out. You may have mistaken this blog for a catechism flyer - ha! Happy Thursday xoxo
