Wanda’s been drawing squiggles and scribbles for ages and then suddenly tonight she did something amazing. Out of the nowhere, she came up with this classic:
Dan: Wanda! What did you draw?
Wanda (coyly, studying her own handwork): Well… It’s not a kid…
Me: I like your picture Wanda. Can you tell me what it is?
She stared at the drawing, like she wasn’t sure. Then she got a huge grin on her boogey-encrusted face and said, “It’s a dancing motato!”
I have to say that drawing circle people with arms sprouting out of their ears has got to be one of my favorite developmental milestones for my kids, right behind learning to not fill their pants with dookey and how to pump their own dang swing at the park.
