My family and I went to IHOP for breakfast this morning. While we waited for our food, my kids doodled on the back of their paper menus.
"I'm going to draw a picture of Mommy," my son announced.
"This should be good," I said.
It started out all right. It was a circle for the face. But then I got worried when he drew the mouth. It was this big gaping hole. I got really worried when he added pointy teeth.
"Dude, that looks monstrous," I commented.
"I'm not finished," he said. Next he drew eyeballs that resembled a snake's eyes. Then he put horns on top of the head.
My husband took a look. "I think she needs a forked tongue and a tail."
I glared at him. "Thanks."
My son added the tongue and the tail, along with some red fire coming out of the mouth. "There, Mommy. It looks just like you!"
