Artist In The Making

Awwwwwwww! It seems as though Madeline went from scribbling to drawing pictures overnight. Today, Madeline drew this masterpiece and here is the story that goes with it....

Madeline is bottom center - eating spaghetti (to left) drinking juice (middle) and a treat (to right). Madeline is mixing some of her treat into her spaghetti.

Papa is top left and Mama is top right (I find it funny that she drew hair on Papa when, if you know David, his head is shaved). Papa is eating meatballs. Mama is top right eating spaghetti. We are all out to eat at a restaurant.

As a Mama, I like what I see in this picture. (1) We are all smiling and (2) although Madeline is front and center (normal to be very egocentric at age 3), Mama and Papa are on either side of her. (3) Yes, Papa is much bigger than Mama but that is okay because although I know Madeline loves me very much, I have very much accepted that Papa is Madeline's "rock star".
