Daughter at 5 Years
“I’m going to draw at the kitchen table,” I say. “Do you want to draw with me?”
“Sure!” she says. So she fetches her crayons and a coloring book, and I get my sketchbook, and together we settle down to do something companionable and quiet together.
“What are you drawing?” she asks.
“Aliens,” I say. “Fluffy ones.”
“That’s weird,” she declares.
“How come?” I say. “Aliens can’t be fluffy?”
“Well,” she says, thoughtful, “I guess so.” And looks over my shoulder at my aliens (Faulfenza in this case).
“See?” I say. “Cute, right?”
She hmms. Then goes through her crayon box and comes up with olive green. “Here, Mommy. I use this color when I color aliens. It’s sort of a…” she pauses, studying the crayon and grasping for words. “A… light… gooey… alien kind of color.”
“A light gooey alien kind of color,” I repeat, trying not to laugh. I take the crayon. “Thank you.”
She nods, satisfied, and returns to her pony pages, leaving me to contemplate her expectations of alien physiology. Apparently Mommy was Doin It Wrong. -_-
This week? Hmm. Writing Bloom. Putting down specs for the Alysha’s Fall re-issue. For the second edition I’m getting one of my favorite illustrators to do all new B&W images for each story! I am excite! Also I need to sit down and look at the Godkin Book 2 scheduling and get back to Sofawolf about that.
If I can get these things accomplished this week I will be good.
