Our 22 month old received an art easel for Christmas. She loves to draw and color, so this was a big hit.

Aside from having to watch her closely (she's already taken the liberty to add a new mural to the dining room wall and some sketches to the wood floor...also in the dining room), she always wants both mommy AND daddy to draw with her.

At the same time.

On the same piece of paper.

She often gets all crazy with her art. (I assume it's something like Tillie when she's doing her art.)

So today, her crazy little hands draw and she says, "OOOOH! WOOOK! A fly boat!"

For those of you who are unfamiliar, the FlyBoat is what the Wonder Pets fly to help out other animals. Here's the FlyBoat:

Here's Ella's FlyBoat:

(Uncanny, I know...)
So I slop up a heart above Ella's FlyBoat and Todd takes his sweet time (and a lot of pride) in drawing a detailed FlyBoat.
Ella watches with great interest the entire time and then looks at Todd and says, "AAAAAAHHHHH! WOOOOOOOOK! A HEART!"

Ahhh...the power of simplistic art...
