Sitting in church on Good Friday, my 3 1/2 year old daughter was very antsy, so I was drawing on a little notepad with her. I'd just finished drawing a triangle, so I drew a circle. Maggie studied it with a detail that I had not expected. She knows her shapes.
"If you draw two of those, you can draw a bra." she finally whispered, more loudly than I would've liked. "Draw a bra, Mommy."
"No, Maggie." I said.
"Please?" she said.
I shook my head no, so she took the pad from me to try out her theory. She quickly drew two circles next to each other, then studied her picture for a minute...then quickly added lots of lines coming off from it. "Its a strap bra."
Other parents get pictures of the pastor, or the cross, or flowers and rainbows......I get a bra..... :)
