Puppies, Puppies Everywhere!

Lately Elliot has really gotten into cukkereen (coloring) whether it be inside with crayons or outside with chalk. This week he was home for 3 days with what was probably the pneumonia virus caught early so we did A LOT of coloring.

What does he draw? Puppies. Lots and lots of puppies.

We have puppies on the driveway. Puppies on the back patio. Puppies all over Elmo's face in his coloring book. I have puppies on the back of random pieces of paper and puppies inside Fred's ESPN Magazine.

Every. Single. Thing. He. Draws. Is. A. Puppy. "Look Momma, Puppy!"

And he beams so proudly - how can you not agree that that teeny tiny scribble of lime green looks just like a puppy?

perhaps he needs a puppy, to draw from life...to hone his skills!

Does this mean you want our cat? As soon as someone, anyone, takes her we can get a dog instead.

She's free and comes with litter and food. She only bites me.

Interested, anyone?

maybe this is something they are teaching at school, i have notice the same pattern with atticus... except then i have to draw puppies for him once he is tired of doing it himself.
