If 1 Million Monkeys Sat Down At Typewriters...

...or similarly, one 2 year-old with nascent small motor skills sat down with a pen and paper, what are the scientific odds that she'd create this:

I see something naughty, too. But my maturity's pretty nascent, too.

Ok, that made me laugh like a man it was so deep. It kinda scared me.

But, MAN, that's funny!

Hmmmm...tell Nate I'm impressed, but next time he might want to just put out a bowl of fruit for her to draw.

Very impressive. Maybe a career in Davidian sculpting is up her alley.

It took me a second of looking, but I just about lost my coke out my nose when I caught it! Too funny! This should be saved for your inapproriate baby book!

If your next post contains a shaky depiction of a vagina, I'm going to be concerned. :)

I laughed for a long time, and then I had to show my husband. He cocked his head to the side and said "Wow. That's really...ummm...accurate. Wow." And burst into fits of laughter.

Thalia's got skillz. ;)

And I thought my two year old was a genius because she started drawing the letter S this week, but she is clearly way behind the curve.

Yes, it's a lovely Florida, with a slightly misshapen panhandle...oh wait.

Yeah. Pretty lifelike drawing there.

I'm not a drama queen, I assure you. This IS funny as everyone says, however, I am a bit concerned. My partner is a Children's Social Worker and she deals with children who are sexually abused among many other horrible things. Please don't misunderstand. I'm only saying that this is inappropriate for a child her age, despite the fact that it's funny. How does she know what a penis looks like?? Something to think about.

8/4/07, 9:04 PM  
Blogger Kris said...

Lucy's Mom-I don't think she actually meant to draw a penis. Kids just draw. Lord knows my kids have drawn some strange looking things. I wouldn't really put a whole lot into what a 2 year old draws. They really don't have enough hand coordination to draw something like that on purpose.

8/4/07, 9:29 PM  
Blogger Jaelithe said...

Yeah, Lucy's Mom-- most two-year-olds don't have enough fine motor control yet to actually create accurate representative drawings. They do, however, like to scribble a lot. If Thalia were one of the rare exceptions who do have the control to draw well at this age, she would also be able to draw other things, like cars or dogs or ice cream cones. I am fairly certain this is an accident.

A HILARIOUS accident.

(Does the fact that it took me a full minute to see it mean I am not getting enough action?)

Does the fact that I saw it right away make me dirty minded? *blush* LMAO!

Looking slightly turgid, slightly flaccid.

Got to keep the art teacher on her toes (or in this case, mommy). Her grasp of still life is amazing.

(Oh my, the blog police, lol)

Anyway, it was a 2 year old's scribble. It's us that's twisted.

And I've always thought Florida was a bit phallic.

I remember when my son was eight and he brought me a magazine he said had porn in it. It was a National Geographic!!

WonderBaby would like to bid on that work. It's a near-perfect portrait of Toadstool, the Phallic Lovey.

What should we open at? Two cookies and an Elmo sticker?
