My beautiful boy

We had to cut off all his hair. Don't ask why. The only good thing was that he allowed me to take some portraits of his new hairstyle. Doesn't he look nice! More pictures on Flickr.

Contemporary Art a la Five Year Old

Actual transcript of a conversation with V as she was getting into the bathtub tonight:

Mom: "Why do you have green marker all over your bottom?"
V: (grinning) "I was making a peanut!"
M: "A peanut?"
V: "Yeah! A peanut with my BUTT!"
M: "A peanut with your butt?!?"
V: "Yeah!"
At which point girl-child sat down on the bathroom floor and mimed tracing her naked cheeks with a green marker.
V: "I sat on a piece of paper and made a peanut. Then I cut it out!"
She then raced (naked) out of the bathroom and returned, triumphantly, with her peanut.

I think I should apply for an arts grant for her, don't you?
