It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Emily wins

…the Sweetness Stakes today.

“May I have the markers?” Our bin of 50 or so markers is Emily’s current Favourite Thing at Mary’s. Today she requests the addition of some scissors and some tape, please. After twenty minutes or so of concentrated effort, she produces…

“It’s for Noah, and Noah’s mummy and daddy.”

“Who have you drawn?”

Emily is used to my obtuseness in matters artful, and doesn’t even sigh a little sigh. Perhaps it helped that I recognized it was a person.

“It’s Noah’s mummy, and that is the baby in her tummy. Noah and his mummy and daddy might like a picture of their new baby, I think.”

I think so, too. It’s every bit as clear as any ultrasound snap I’ve ever seen. And this one? Is hand-crafted with love.

  1. How cute! My five year old was very interested in this picture when he looked over his shoulder and saw it. I “have a baby in my tummy that’s gonna come out soon” too, so he’s into this sort of thing. He giggled with delight at the picture. He was concerned, however, about the little loop underneath the person– “What is that? Is that the part where the baby comes out of the birth canal?” Also– “Where are her arms?” (She needs them to hold the baby, you see.)
