I was picking up my five-year-old the other day, and I saw that she was working on a drawing that looked like this:

Maybe it's just me, but I got worried that my daughter was drawing what appeared to be... a giant bladder with a penis coming out of it?  I asked her what it was and she said, "I'm not done!"  Then she added this:

And I was like, this isn't better!

Thank God, it did eventually turn into something non-phallic:


  1. IF you're that overweight, the penis is hidden within the pannus.

  2. How beautiful! And you may have a budding artist on your hands.... the way she started with the bodice (and not just the head) shows some good planning and spatial visualization (judging by the approximate age I'm assuming by virtue of the quality of the drawing).

    Anyway, how cool! And I'm glad your fears weren't realized :-)

    I thought it was going to be a hot air balloon. Shows what heathens we are.

    1. Thanks :). I can't tell if she's good at it art or not.

  3. Too much medical training maybe! But it came out cute!

    Can I ask you a serious question? If it's too personal, I do you stay so thin????? Thanks!

  4. O ye of little faith...
    She's a good little artist!

  5. Ahhh, the joys of parenthood.

    CHILD: Here, Mommy! You love it?
    ME: Uhh. Yes?
    CHILD: It is big and you blow it.
    ME: ...
    CHILD: You love to blow the big ones!
    ME: [Dies on the inside]

    EPILOGUE: It was a "birthday candle."
