I'm a cool mom
I was cleaning out my son's backpack tonight and I found 2 lunch bags from where I pack his morning snack each day. I asked him why he didn't throw his trash away and he told me that he kept them because of the pictures. He always takes his snack bag to after-school care and he and his friends draw whatever I had drawn that day. He smiled and said he loves it when I draw on his snack bag and that he thinks I'm cool. Did you hear that? I'm cool!
Okay-- I know I suck at drawing. But to him, it is cool. And this will probably be *the only* time in his life that he will think his mom is cool, so let me have this small glimpse of glory.
The funny thing is, he is keeping goofy pictures of Christmas trees, cross-eyed killroys and animals from the Ed Emberley books-- it's not like they are works of art. But as long as we have this little "connection" on his snack bag, I am happy!
