A couple of weeks ago the children were playing with clay ( making something for mother’s day …SHHHHH!) I took what was left over and made a head ( with a stupid look on his face … but that was an accident). After drying up he ( because it’s a boy) “stood” there depressed on my desk. After thinking for a while I understood why he was so unhappy; He wanted a body!!! And I did it! He complained at first because the clothes were too funky and there was no way he could flirt with anybody if he was dressed like that but … he got used to it! Actually, he’s on his knees because he is begging me to change his clothes :-)!
I’ve finally had time to draw the 3 little pigs!
Being vegetarian I find it difficult to understand why people don’t like vegetables. Children can be so fussy about the little bits of red, yellow, purple or green they find in their plate. I tried to find an explanation and this is what I came up with.
“Vegetables lived happily in a nice garden. They were very friendly.”
One day, sausages came along with roasted chickens and burgers. They were very mean and started to kick , beat and brutalize the poor vegetables. Since then life hasn’t been the same for these lovely creatures, they are nowadays exploited, abused and live under fear of the evil meat family.
” That’s why I don’t want to eat vegetables mummy! They have suffered so much! I feel pity for them!”
“we must do something!” Time has come to avenge them! Justice must be done!
“Get all the sausages and burgers we’ve got. Put them in the pan. Get them ready! I’ll teach them a lesson!!
There are smugglers everywhere: 🙂
Some of the pictures of the story I drew for my kids about the importance of brushing their teeth. ” If you don’t brush your teeth you’ll have tiny monsters growing in your mouth!”
It was a little somebody’s birthday today. I had to make a crown.
