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.

@WeberWriting Absolutely. It takes a bit of time and juggling but it is 100% doable. Just have to ignore the sanctimommies of the world
Don't feel bad for tossing frozen chicken strips in the oven and calling it dinner. Don't even feel bad if you don't turn them over. holdinholden.com/2016/05/shit…
To the piece of crap who broke into my car over the weekend- You think you found nothing of value to steal, but you actually took with you the nasty head cold my family has been passing around in that very vehicle for the past week. Enjoy, scumbag! xoxo, Germ Infested SUV

If anyone asks how I died, you can just go ahead and tell them "she was lured in by free pie in exchange for listening to 2nd graders screech Thanksgiving songs for 30 minutes"
