Let's Talk About It: Encouragement

Emma and I are paging through the new Little Einsteins coloring book Grandma & Grandpa gave her for Easter, and we come to a page that asks you to draw in creatures of the sea. Emma suggests I draw some fish and starfish. Of course, I draw away.

Then she says: "Mommy, draw Ariel."

I respond: "A mermaid? Oh no, Emma. I don't think Mommy can draw a mermaid."

E: "Yes, you can, Mommy. You can do it. You're a great Mommy!"

How could I say no to that?

You are right, Emma, she is. And you, my little sweetie are a chip off the ol' block. I remember another certain little girl who used to love to beg her very un-talented mommy to draw prictures...of princesses, dogs, flowers, and on & on & on :-)

I think thats one of the best things about mommyhood. My kids think I am superwoman!

Too funny! She is so right! I'm hoping you'll scan your mermaid picture and post it! :D
