My Little Rembrandt

Finally! The magical moment is here!

The boy is not interested in drawing, or anything crafty really unless it means creating a monumental mess. He’s never come home with drawings, or pictures of faces or anything. Just not interested.

So he wasn’t especially pleased to be put in an arts & crafts club by his mean Mum (it’s good for his fine motor skills, m’kay?)

So, to my utter delight, this week in his bag was a PICTURE! An actual drawing, with colour and everything!

My sister happened upon it and asked me why there was a drawing of a flying penis stuck on the fridge, but she can piss off. It’s clearly an impressionist masterpiece.

“Pig” by RJ, aged 4.

Isn’t it awesome? My very first “oh it’s LOVELY” (but WTF is it?!) moment. Happy days.

  1. Haha. I love it!! WTF is it? I had a very awkward moment today with my 4 year old. She drew a picture of what she wants her birthday cake to look like. (Her 5th birthday is coming up!) I looked at the picture and was surprised. She drew a dinosaur on her cake! I was delighted that we would finally move away from anything princessy and girly and pink. So I said “Oh you want a dinosaur on your cake? thats great!” She looked as me in disgust. “IT”S A UNICORN!”……Riiiiiight. well it looks like a triceratops. thanks for sharing #bigpinklink

    1. Brilliant! Aren’t they funny?? He never ever draws anything, ever. Well, actually there’s the issue of the portrait of me Daddy made him do in my birthday card but that’s another post entirely…! Xx

  2. Haha I just spat my tea over my laptop. When I used to work in pre-school, the children would draw the funniest things. Hideously inappropriate but so funny! #bigpinklink

  3. I’m crying!! I deff see a pig but now also a flying penis!! There must be some sort of porking joke there no?! I love it when my son, (same as yours), brings me home a picture that is more then just a scrawl. This should go in a frame and kept to embarrass him in his teens! Thanks so much for linking up to the #bigpinklink

  4. Ha, this gave me a giggle on a miserable Wednesday afternoon – thank you. Well done to your little artist (so what if it looks like a flying penis?) x #bestandworst

  5. I’d wonder what your sister has been up to, if that is what the penises she’s seen look like….

  6. It’s adorable, WhateverTF it is. My mother framed the first ‘recognisable’ picture I painted (an aeroplane) and now she has given it to me as a housewarming present! #chucklemums

    1. Haha, I might just do that…! Or maybe I’ll collect them and gave them made into coasters. Ooh, may I will get them made into coasters!! #chucklemums

  7. He IS genius. And your sister is highly imaginative 🙂 Thank you for sharing; I will await my children’s pictures of pigs with proper anticipation now! #chucklemums

    1. They are amazing. He actually drew a person the other day. Ears like elephants! Thanks for commenting on both posts – can’t wait to see yours! #chucklemums

  8. Ha! I remember feeling like my mum didn’t fully appreciate the wonders of my drawings when I was a kid – but in fairness, they were probably pretty s**t. #chucklemums

  9. It’s pink, it’s got four legs, what more is she asking for?! I question why the pig is levitating, but perhaps something had just made it jump. Kids’ pictures are hilarious though, I reckon you could have a whole blog devoted to them!

    Thank you for hosting #chucklemums, I know it’s going to be a real success 🙂 x

  10. Oh I do love looking at children’s innocent doodlings that clearly look so rude!! Definitely one to keep and maybe hand out copies of at his 18th birthday, or at his wedding?! My 2 haven’t got to the stage yet where they’re attempting to draw actual things, we are still just scribbling, but I know I won’t be able to contain myself when the inevitable picture of a willy shows up!! I won’t be able to contain my WTF?!! Thanks for hosting #chucklemums, it looks like you’ve had a brilliant first week!
