Wordless Wednesday - Benji's Artistic Interpretation of Mommy that I'm not thankful for

Benji drew a picture of our family the other day on the magnadoodle. I couldn't keep the drawing since it erases in a matter of seconds so I took a picture to savor the moment. I had to ask Benji to explain the picture to me, as all moms do - even though by the looks of it I wasn't sure if I was going to like what he had to say.

Apparently he drew me inside of our house and wanted everyone else outside of the house. Notice how everyone is kinda proportionate, except for me! He told me that I was the biggest one that's why he drew me so big - thanks Benji. Also my hair is such a wreck that he laughed about the fact that it was so messy it actually landed outside of the house. Everyone else looks kind of happy but I look kind of grumpy in comparison. I love seeing this new expressive side of Benji but geez, maybe I need to pay more attention to my looks. Thanks for the reminder Benji, thanks a lot.

LOL Sorry about your size and your hair! Maybe he loves you the most that's why he made you the biggest???
;-) Um...yeah...sure. We'll go with that. After all, you get to stay in the house while everyone is banished from the house. :-)

I only had one class on art therapy.. so I am by no means an art therapist.. but you should probably feel flattered. Because he drew you big means you are important..maybe big in his life. Also, because you are the only one in the house maybe you are the enforcer of boundaries and boundaries are good. You also got a little more detail than the others which again can symbolize your importance.

Ok.. take that with a grain of salt because I am not an art therapist, only a counselor.. but.. isn't it neat to take a peak into our child's thoughts? :)
omg I love it! You're the biggest because you mean the most!!! Happy WW.
Love it! We get similar drawings in our house, too. Great artwork. :D

You're the biggest because you're the most important!!! And only women with personal stylists don't have hair days like that.

My kids always draw their best stuff on the Magna Doodles! I have lots of pictures of Doodle drawings.
That is too cute though! And I agree with everyone else... You are the biggest because you are the most important!
