As I found them

Often, as I'm walking through the house, I'll come across something the kids have been playing with, and have left to go do something else. Most of the time, the kids aren't there to explain what it was, so one just has to wonder what they were playing when they made these creations...

I can't help but wonder... is he breathing fire? Is it a speech bubble, and he's warning the other dinosaurs about the coming comet?

I'm not sure about this one, either, but I'm sure it would make a pretty good children's story.

I later asked Fiona about it: "He was practicing, and finally he got it right, and then he could play it out in the street, and people could ride bicycles." Now you know.

That is soooooo funny. Those kinds of things crack me up. I love when kids allow us a glimpse of how their thought processes work :-)

Sounds like Fiona has been listening to you practice on the guitar so you can play in public. You're setting her a good example.

These are both awesome. I particularly love the dinosaur and your musings as to what it might mean.

I'm still wondering why an elephant—which can trumpet all by itself—needs a trumpet. That is the part I think could make a good story.

Yeah, but can an elephant's trunk play "Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy" ? That must be why he needs a trumpet.

One of my resolutions last year was to be able to play the violin well enough that I could go play on a street corner. Maybe your elephant had a similar resolution...

I love the elephant with the trumpet. Both pictures, actually. They're great! Good imaginations those kids have! Wonder who they got that from?
