Sooner or later, I knew I would have to accept that in something like 2 short weeks, my baby will be off to school, and I won’t have him around here to annoy entertain me anymore. I’ve written blogs about it, i’ve lamented, stressed, and cheered about it- but it wasn’t until I was thinking about all of the weird shizz he draws on a daily basis that it really dawned on me that he would be GONE- and that weird shizz would be going with him.
I’ve had so much fun sharing his…ahem…”artwork” with the world- thinking about how his weirdness may be normalized out of him by school is a sad sad thought for a fellow weirdo like me. Or perhaps he’ll go to school and become even more weird and the amount of hilarious things he draws- and soon enough WRITES (dear god!) … but one can never be sure. And since I believe it’s better safe than sorry- I thought it would be for the best for all of us if I put out ONE more blog full of Holden’s beautiful artwork before he joins the real world.
I suppose with age comes maturity (try not to snort)- because my eldest child, apple of my eye, original tearer of my insides, has finally moved past drawing that stupid SpongeTurd StupidPants all the time… and gone on to something far more eloquent and refined: Family Portraits.
How sweet of him to draw our happy little unit of 4, with our trusted puppy by our side- right?
Can you guess where i’m going with this? I bet you can.
@levacas Haha apparently mine was $15 ouch!

I am now counting travel time in whines. 12 more whines to Disney. Funny, that's also the amount of drinks I'm going to have when we arrive.

Roadtrip me takes joy in watching the kids panic as the life drains from their electronics. Yes, I brought chargers. They don't know that.
