Role Reversal

Emmy had a big bucket of chalk on her patio yesterday, so I grabbed a purple chalk and drew a dog. Cameron (age 5) grabbed a pad of paper and a marker and in no time had copied it meticulously. His dog was better, as you can see.

commented yesterday: don't kids make the best art?

... So I complimented Cameron on his dog, and then pointed to the house. "But what I REALLY love is your HOUSE."

Emmy (below, age 59) said, "I drew that house!" Then she proceeded to add grass and to outline a curtain.
"Why did you draw a FIRE under the house?" Ryan (age 3) demanded.
"That's not a fire! That's grass," Emmy replied.
"But it's RED. Grass isn't RED!" he insisted.
