ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

A parent's worst nightmare

Junior and I were coloring and I offered to draw Thomas.



I'm no Picasso but I thought I'd done an okay job. Junior didn't think so. Junior said Thomas's tender was too small and that he wasn't on tracks.

Looks like I'm raising a know-it-all. Is there anything worse?

(And what the heck? Thomas is clearly better than my horse!)

My three year old recently asked me to draw a cat. I did. He then said, "Not a dead kitty!" NICE.

I'm pretty damn impressed with your drawing. Lets just say that Junior doesn't know what he's talking about ;)

Kids who complain about mommy's drawing lose an art partner. Permanently.

He got more out of you than he would have outta me. I like the Thomas.

Ooh, that happens to me all the time with my nephew. He'll ask me to draw a pokemon or some character from Star Wars. I'll work super hard on it and draw from another pic, not from memory. Then instead of saying thanks or it looks nice, he'll point out, like he did with Pikachu, that the head was slightly too small and his stomach too wide. I even did a blog header for him, and all he could do was complain about the color of the character's T-shirt.

He makes me nuts, but I still keep drawing these things for him. Maybe that means I was nuts to begin with.

BTW, I think Thomas looks great!

That's an awesome Thomas. You could probably sell it (and the horse) and make tons of money from some gallery.
