Kids Draw the Darndest Things

Setting: Crack of dawn (ie 9:30 am) on a Sunday. I'm sleeping, Gracie is bouncing on the bed next to me.

GRACIE: I drew you a picture, Mom!

ME: Ughshgfklaehhwa (I'm not a morning person)

GRACIE: Look at it! I drew you as a mermaid on a surfboard! Aren't you cute? I drew you KISSING.

ME: Umghhaweroug [looks at picture of MERMAID MAKE-OUT ORGY, eyes widening]

Um. Wait. Who am I kissing?

GRACIE: That's Daddy.

ME: And exactly WHO is kissing Daddy?

GRACIE [laughs]: ...

ME [panics]: !!!

GRACIE: That's also Daddy. I drew that one first, but he was too far away to kiss you so I crossed him out.

Phew!

And on the back, just in case I wasn't sure if she loved me or not:

She does x12!

Nothing like waking up to mermaid orgy art and a huge array of I Love Yous.

xoxo,

awww ... my boys never draw me mermaid orgy art. Or any other orgy are for that matter. I'm totally jealous!

You have no idea how many hits you're gonna get from Google for using the word orgies.

Ha ha ha ha! That is so funny! Must have been better than coffee for snapping you awake! Lots of Love from your daughter and the idea of a second daddy to help around the house. ;o) Smart kid!

This is hilarious! I used to nanny the sweetest little boy on earth and he came home from preschool on Martin Luther King Day with three of his handprints cut out of white, brown and black construction paper. His explanation... We are all the same! People with white hands, people with black hands and people with wood hands! So so true, but so so funny!
