Doodly-doos



Yesterday I was working in Corel Painter (or trying to) and Kate crawled up into my chair with me and wanted to play. The graphics tablet attracts her like magic. ("Color?") So I let her scribble on the screen a bit, and then she had me drawing animals for her. "Green mouse! Red rooster! Orange lion!" Animals are always her big thing. The other day Doug made her a paper dragon, which she received with great interest, then pointed at him and said, "Horse? Horse paper?" Now we have little paper animals all over the house. Poor kid--it's going to be quite a blow someday when she realizes there are things her parents can't do.

Wow, these are so fun! I'm lucky to manage a stick figure when the kids ask me to draw for them.

Ok, I thought I posted the above comment to the "dilemma" post. I'm losing it.

Great doodles! You know that you'll need to think about packaging them up, don't you! ;)

My Dad used to draw things for me all the time. I'd always crawl up in his lap with a tablet and pencil or crayon and ask him to draw me pictures to color. I wish I had saved some of them now though!
