three is a magic number

alex pic of our family plus one.jpg

the alleycat's rendition of the family for his kindergarten teacher. on the amazing side, he got my ring on the correct hand and finger. how did he remember that at school?

then on the disturbing side, there are some extra folks. actually, half of em either don't really exist or are deceased already. does anyone out there think this is a healthy display? no, it's fine, i had pretty much given up already.

I think it's adorable! For kindergarten, he's actually got some great drawing skills. This one's a keeper, extra people or not...

No, no, no, you are fine. That is a GREAT picture. See... next year, there will be dragons eating everyone's head off. Or there will be killer bunnies as pets, with pools of blood from the killing from the knives on their paws. And then you will no longer be wondering, "does anyone out there think this is a healthy display". Instead you will be wondering, "When is his teacher going to send us to family counseling..."

;-) Just sayin'...

That would be a halo over your head, no doubt. (Either that or an incoming fiery meteor that's about to destroy civilization.)

Our middle boy was obcessed with the Titanic when he was that age -- that and dinosaurs. So all his drawings of the family featured mom and dad waving good-bye from the deck of the Titanic, or being eaten by a T-rex. And that boy turned out just fi... Well, bad illustration.

I'm SURE there is an explanation. Anytime one of these drawings came home with Priss, there was a reason for every single detail, every person and animal and tree. Speaking of animal, that would be an animal on the left, right?

key, it's a dog. norman, died feb 2005. still, part of the family, can't argue that logic.

Re: Key, Shoe's reply, and the Dog...

Are you sure the boy don't just want a turtle?
