The artist, I am

not....  While I was napping today, 4 y/o asked if he could have some drawing paper, color pencils, and an ink pen.  I pulled myself off of the couch to get the requested items.  He spent about 20 minutes tracing his hand in a variety of colors then pulled my throw on the floor and demanded I draw a picture of him holding a lollipop.  He stood by the couch in his best "I'm-holding-a-lollipop" pose and asked why I wasn't drawing a picture of him in his dark jeans holding his "pretend" lollipop.

I tried to explain that I was no ArtiST , and my drawings were pretty bad but he insisted... so I began my drawing of "Mr. Have What I Want eating a lollipop" (his title, edited by mom.)...


And now it hangs on his wall beside his bed...
