Genetics

So I swear I don't mean for this to be a "awww...look at my cute kid" blog.

But right now I don't have much to blog about, and tonight after I saw this particular thing, I had to laugh because this is so my child.

Chunky was selected as one of 10 or so kids from his school selected for the Town Art Show.

This is pretty impressive considering this town has 8 elementary schools, and Chunky's (one of the smaller schools) has more kids than I had in my high school!

I can also say that he obviously gets his creative-artsy-ness from me. Dr. Mad Scientist couldn't create his way out of a paper sack!

Anyway, we walked up to the middle school this evening to check out his accomplishment.

It's a still life of a dinner table.

However, do you see what's on the plate there next to the turkey legs?

Cookies! Ha ha! That's my boy!!!

Congrats to Chunky! Sweet drawing.

I think the look on his face is more evidence that he's your child than the art. Muahaha!

I'm all about the "aw, look at my kid" posts :-)
Chunky did a great job - I can't draw for s#!t, even when I was little. I went for the cut/paste/glitter route. He looks very proud, and rightly so!
(I type this as my cookies are in the oven for tomorrow's potluck... mmm... cookies...)

LOL, that look on Chunky's face is too funny! He should be proud of himself - that's a great painting! I'm seriously artistically challenged. I can't even draw a straight line.

My dad was very talented at drawing, and my older brother and sister (twins) inherited his skills. They both have amazing drawing skills. Somehow it just skipped over me and my other siblings.

My husband has some brothers who are good at drawing, and my son seems to have inherited the drawing talent from both sides of the family, but somehow it skipped my daughter. She inherited my love of writing and books and spelling but difficulty with math, but my son got the good math and drawing skills, while reading, writing and spelling comes harder for him. Funny how that worked out.

Congratulations to Chunky!

Congrats Chunky!!! I like the proud parent posts.

I love the cookies on his plate! That should be a staple instead of veggies.

EXCELLENT kid art! I have a Matisse poster that looks just like that -- same composition, same color scheme. Except it's French, so no turkey, no cookies (French cooking is great, but yay turkey and cookies).
