Friendly's and Pornography

Abbey had gymnastics today. She loves it, and I love to watch her do it. She is so excited and serious, and really tries hard. Today they were working on their landings. She's 3 of course, so basically she jumps off of something and tries to land and then raises her arms in that triumphant gymnastics stance. Then we went to Friendly's for lunch, just the 2 of us. It was so nice, we ate and talked about her class, I'm amazed that I can find so much to talk about with a 3 year old. Perhaps we spend a little too much time together . . . ?

Then Jack came home from school with a note from his teacher, accompanied by the "art" he made during class today. It was a lovely cut out of legs, with a GIANT penis glued to it. Wonderful. I had to sign the note and send it back, and Jack had to rip up his creation and throw it away. I really wanted to take a picture of it first to post here, but I thought that might undermine the seriousness of the situation. I wanted to laugh when I first opened up and figured out what it was. It actually was quite good, as far as pornographic art goes.

6 year old boys . . . . gotta love em'.

Um,Dude, how the hell did Jack GET this picture to cut out anyway?!?! Last I checked schools love old magazines- Ranger Rick and Country Living; not Playboy and Penthouse! I am sure Jack will tell this story some day- sitting on a couch on a talk show or at a shrink- not sure which.

No dork, he made the picture himself. He cut out legs from construction paper and then the giant penis from some more paper and then taped it together. Geez. As an art teacher hasn't a kid ever drawn/painted/created anything like this?
