notes for Alice's future therapist

(and make no mistake about this, people, there will be some therapy in this child's life at some point down the road! I mean, she will come by a neurosis honestly, with both parents suffering from some sort of anxiety/depressive disorder)

Alice stayed home sick with a cold and fever today. She has a mild virus, but enough of one to warrant staying home. After I filled her up with some Motrin she was good to go, and spent most of the morning walking around our house pulling every toy she owned off the shelves. I finally decided that some holiday crafts were in order and pulled out all our goodies for Alice to rake through. Glitter and construction paper and glue sticks, oh my!

We started to make some homemade holiday cards out of some left-over Christmas cards and bags I had from last season. She loved it - especially the gluing part.

It was then that I discovered something interesting and perhaps a little disturbing in my kiddo's cards she was making. The image below was taken off the cell camera, so not that great, but can you see Santa's face?

Oh no you can't??? Oh that's right. Alice blocked it out with her glued on pompoms. Take that, Santa!

Oh, what was that Rudolph? You would like to see as well? Sorry - unfortunately you will have the same fate as Santa. Destined to ride through this season with no face.

There are more examples of covered-up faces, but you get the gist. I'm just waiting now for the first parent-teacher conference at preschool, where they start the conversation with "ummmm...we're a little concerned about your daughter..."


  • I am not alarmed - merely relieved that our daughter will not seem like such a nut in comparison to Alice.

  • What a fabulous and creative name Squishy is!!! It's as creative as her art work... Santa looks great in coloured pom poms...
