Long girl hair and China

Mrs. Incredible, over at That's Life v 2.0 (check out her blog - I LOVE IT!) posted an awesome BRAGGING post featuring a masterpiece by her son Jack Jack. It is amazing...and I felt a bit jealous.

My DJ is now 4 years old and it is a battle to get him to even write his letters. He NEVER comes home with art work from junior kindergarten or play group.

So, on Saturday I asked DJ if he wanted to draw a picture and make a birthday card for a party we were going to that afternoon. I suggested he draw a picture of Baby Alythea opening her gift.

He did.


Low and behold, it actually looked like a person. It even had lots of hair - just like Baby Alythea! I was so proud!

Then DJ asked for another piece of paper to draw a picture of Mommy.

Wow - I was so excited...I got him a nice fresh piece of paper and struck a pose.

And voila! A portrait of Mommy... Isn't it great!

DJ showed the picture to his Daddy and brother. Anderson asked who was in the picture. DJ replied, "It is Mommy. Look - she has long girl hair and here is her china. "

Interesting...why am I holding china? Not sure. (The china is that big read circle just under my chin.) So, I ask DJ why is Mommy is holding china?
"Mommy, every girl has a china - it is where you go pee pee and have babies."

Of course....a china ...my china ...now on display on our fridge...

That is so funny! I had my husband read it and he even laughed out loud -- that doesn't happen too often.

So adorable - the pictures and the stories behind them!!! I kinda like it called a China - rather than a v-china, ya know. Like it's precious like a piece of china - I like it!

Thanks for coming by - so nice to see you. Take care - Kellan

OHmommy said...

Stop it.

Stop it now.

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!

Take it OFF the fridge and frame it forever. Do you know what I have framed? A picture that my first born son drew at 4 of me with "spikey legs".... as in unshaven legs.

But CHINA? China is soooo much funnier than spikey legs.

That is HILARIOUS!!!

So I TOTALLY got where your little one was going with that. I guess it's from being around too many kids with articulation issues all day. But, I think I wouldn't be able to put it on the fridge without laughing each time I saw it!

Love those pictures! We have 'chinas' at our house too. and robots (vulva, ack!) apparently.
Love kids' minds.

Janet said...

At least he drew it nice and small. You know, so maybe folks won't notice it and say, "Hey! What's the red circle?"

I don't know why I typed that...just popped into my head.

Jules said...
