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.

Before you call kiddie gamblers anonymous, let me explain Oscar's fascination with scratch tickets. Yes, he has a momentary flash of instant wealth when he sees one on the bus or sidewalk and declares "I'm rich!" (this truly happens every time, everyday) but this is just for dramatic effect. He is collecting them for a project - he wants to make a collage. He thinks they're interesting. Hey, I think Oscar is interesting, so I let him pick up these cast offs - I can picture the old dudes in the neighborhood scratching all the while they are leaving the bodega and tossing them with utter disappointment on the ground. There's always OTB I guess. Happy Wednesday! xoxo
