BoyArt in 4 Parts

BoyChild is working on adjectives at school. Or at least that's what I'm going with based on the paper in four parts that he brought home on Monday. Let's examine:

What this picture is telling me is that after a whole year of art class, he's mastered stink lines and slapped the fastest thing down on paper that looked like a good smelling pitzza.

The teacher is now aware that we have stinky garbage in the house. The stink line is not as wavy as with the pitzza, probably indicating a sharper odor. Come on BoyChild...GirlChild draws better than that!

The best item he could come up with for "tasting good" is ICE?

Alice: Now if you guys are good and finish all your vegetables, we'll have ice for dessert!

BoyChild and GirlChild: YAY! YUM!

I can only be thankful that he didn't write "Mom's fart smells disgusting." And that he spared us a picture of a pig with stink lines.

You're gonna save that last one for his baby book, right? (I mean, when we get around to being the kind of people who keep baby books, I mean...) It is too awesome!

Bee said...

I would sell them on ebay.
You'd make so much money you could pay for the pig (or mom) farts to smell good. ;o)

Jonny's Mommy said...

Amazing work. Very thought provoking.

I'll take all of them for $1 million.

When I hit the lottery....

Madmad - *snort* Babybook? What's that? I've got a box of assorted stuff upstairs he can leaf through when he's older. I am SOOOO not a scrapper.

Bee - Hmmm...I should stick it up as a lark and see what happens!

JMom - Don't think I'm not going to hold you to that. My backyard is screaming for a pool.

"Stink lines" is my new phrase for today, and I am going to try to work it into as many conversations as possible. :)

BoyChild is very... ol-factory oriented, isn't he? Perhaps he has a future as a fragrance marketer...

Let's just hope he doesn't get into package design. All the bottles would have stink lines on them.

Alice said...

Jenn - Maybe I should come up with a word-of-the-day calendar! I'd never have to work again! Or maybe only part-time.

Sally said...

I wish that ice was the tastiest thing I could think of! I think I'd be a lot smaller if I did!

Alice said...

Sally - Yeah *sigh* so would I.

leigh said...

love the smell lines, both straight and squiggly. children are so imaginative.

Memarie Lane said...

A couple years ago my son drew a picture of himself peeing in a toilet, with poop simultaneously coming out of the other end, complete with projection lines. It was beautiful.

Alice said...

Leigh - sadly, BoyChild's imagination has been killed off my Nintendo

Marie - THAT is a picture you need to show us!!

Mary Witzl said...

Wonderful post, wonderful comments. I'm going to go have myself some of that scrumptuous, flavorful ice.

Kelly said...

That child is brilliant...you know people go to art school for years and come out not knowing how to compilie something so masterful as Boychild has done. He so kicks ass!! I want a picture like that. When my daughter was little all she would draw was octopus, (or is it octopi?) A square would be an octopus..squiggly lines..octopus..2 dots..octopus..you get the picture..kids minds are magnificent!

Alice said...

Mary - Mmmmm....ice....

Kelly - It's not everyone who can master stink lines!

Half-Past Kissin' Time said...

This CRACKED ME UP! Your son seems very, um...observant! Too funny.

JD at I Do Things said...

Wow, I'm impressed he spelled (almost typed "smelled") "disgusting" correctly.

I heart ice!

That's gotta be the best fridge art ever. And stink lines never go out of style.

Alice said...

Kissin'Time - I'm glad you enjoyed!

JD - Yeah, he does OK for first grade. And you see he spelled 'fart' correctly too since they spell it on Nanny McPhee.

Tall Penguin - I think my new blog will be called 'Stink Lines'. ; )
