A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words...

Braxton has been home sick the latter half of the week. This means much coloring, movie watching, napping and not changing out of our jammies has taken place. Sometimes, it's good to be home.

Yesterday B-rox drew me a picture. That looked like more than scribbles. Then he told me the story about it.

I've posted a guide, so you can follow along:

"So, there's a sun and a tree. There is a cake on top of the tree because the sun is baking it. It can't be under the tree because then the sun couldn't bake it." {Smart kid... Though, why we're baking the cake with the sun - as opposed to our really nice convection oven - I never found out.}

"And then there are seven flowers. One of them is a rectangle, because sometimes you just need a flower that's a rectangle. Seven is a good number, right Mom?" {Yes, as long as we're not talking about the number of siblings you want, honey.}

"Then there are three grapes, because you can get reallyreallyvery hungry waiting to make a cake while it cooks. Eating food makes you not hungry."

"After the cake is done, there is a fan to cool it down so we can eat it faster. Because three gapes isn't too much food. It's like a snack food - not a dinner food. So, then we eat the cake, and sing you happy birthday. Someday it's going to be your birthday. Right, Mom?" {Yes, someday.}

"I made the cake orange because it's your favorite. So it should taste really good to you. But not to me because my favorite color is green."

Watching this kid grow up is a really awesome adventure.

Well maybe he wants a solar oven. Who knows.
