Just one of the things nobody warns you about parenthood...

I've been keeping a mental list of the things that nobody warned me about parenthood. (Okay, okay, I've got a long list documented on my computer just in case I ever find someone to blame.) But ANYWAY this one was just too pathetic not to share.

Yes, I drew that. Being a parent makes you revisit all the things you were really bad at when you were a kid. Let's just say none of my teachers ever told me I should take art classes.

When Toyin stopped by tonight to pick Annika up, he saw this and said, "Oh, Mommy drew a cat."


It's a pig.

I was doing okay until I had to draw the body.

Here's hoping that I never have to write out notes to any of Annika's teachers when she starts school. I really don't want to get red penned for my handwriting again.


  1. Cute! I knew it was a pig, the nose was clearly piggish!

  2. Ha Ha! Thanks Ronda! It's a picture only a mother can identify.

  3. Haha...I totally knew it was a pig too!

  4. Luckily, 2 year olds are not all that critical of our artwork! I get asked to draw all sorts of things and barely do a passing job of it. Lexi has never complained or said "Mommy, that doesn't look like a pig." So, I think we're doing OK.


  5. Heh, heh, yeah Lisa, Annika is not critical either, but crayons in general brings back some sucky memories of getting made fun of for not coloring inside the lines.
