Outta the Mouths of Babes: The Portrait Artist Edition

ANNELIE: I drew you a picture, Mom. It's you and Dad.

ME: I love it. Looks just like us.

ANNELIE [inspecting her picture]: Yeah, it DOES look just like you! I'm going to put it on the fridge to show Gracie when she gets home.

[sticks it on fridge, admires work]

Wow. I'm pretty sure Gracie won't even know I drew it.

[looks at me VERY seriously]

It's so good Gracie will think YOU drew it, Mom.

------------------

Hee hee, my kiddo cracks me up whilst flattering the both of us, and I'm not going to say I don't love that ('Cuz I do)

Annelie is a pretty fantastic artist, if I do say so myself. I'm quite a fan of her emo graphic novel-style art.

I get hundreds of little emo-kid ink drawings a day.

Hundreds. Literally. This kiddo draws morning, noon, and night.

Move over, Edward Gorey - Annelie Hopkins is on her way!

OK, I'm going to try this again. Just to prove your blog doesn't hate me. Annelie and Amelia would love drawing stuff together :) Merrick is getting the drawing bog too though all of his people look like bubbles with limbs and vacant expressions.
