What are YOU thankful for?

An awesome mom posted this to the Rants from Momyland Facebook wall and I just about died. Her six year old did this in school:

Here's what the mom had to say about this masterpiece: "My 6yo said they're 'mashed potatoes', although I strongly suspect this is the 'after digestion' shot."

If you have any school projects where your child's artistic interpretation of their thankfulness is extra awesome, please submit them! We're dying to see them!

Let's Commemorate Feeling Bored and Angry!

I asked my daughter Mini (age 4) to draw me a picture. I asked her to close her eyes and think about what it felt like to be part of our family. She closed her eyes and sweetly sighed. I asked her how she felt. She said: "Sometimes I feel bored but mostly… angry." Then she shrugged.

I was not expecting that so I said: "Just a draw the picture, kid."

And she did. She drew a picture of what it feels like to be part of our family and this is what it looked like:

That's her  - the big one in the middle. That's her father and I over in the corner. Cowering? I have no idea. Is she singing? Yelling? I know not.

Then I emailed this gem to my friends at Formia Design because why not commemorate her feeling bored and angry about being my child. They turned it into this:

It is so awesome. And everyone in my family loves it - most of all Mini. And honestly, it's sort of a piece of art. I asked that this one be stainless steel because we're hard on things - but it could have been fancy sterling or even gold. Or one of those Pandora bracelet charms that all my friends love! Or a necklace! Like this one:

This was created by a precious child who was neither bored nor angry.

I hope you lost it in a furnace.

I understand why this one got "lost", because it makes me feel fear. 
"My son made this puppet in art class. When we moved this summer, I "lost" it because I was afraid that it was going to kill us in our sleep. My friend, Dan, noted the eery resemblance to Lady Elaine from Mr. Rogers. I swear that he is a very happy and well-adjusted child. Please don't report us to Child Protective Services."
