Akasha has just drawn a princess and a castle. She proudly guided me through her drawing. The princess is wearing a lovely crown and has her legs inside her dress.
The castle has lots of windows. The one above her head looks like a heart so I asked her if it’s a heart-shaped window. She informed me that the princess has fallen in love. (She’s a right romantic, yesterday she told me that her favourite moment during the Wild West Show was when the Indian and White-Face fell in love. Actually, I already knew it, as she’d turned to me at that exact moment with a fully tooth-bearing grin and glazed eyes).
She then discovered that the prince was missing from her picture, so she hurried off to correct her masterpiece.
A little interlude:
I believe in being honest with my children so when she questioned me recently about bollocks with regard to the human anatomy, the only way forward I found was to draw a little picture of a naked man. These are the problems we parents face when having such a wide age range between children.
I drew a little picture and then I explained to her that normally when we draw people we don’t draw them naked, but with their clothes on. Just like when we see people they are usually fully dressed.
People: I did make it quite clear.
She returned to me with her incredible artwork. Castle. Princess. Heart above her head. And her prince. Willy and bollocks present and correct inside his trousers.
I did originally want to scan the picture in and add it to this post, however I am concerned that some of my readers may find it too sexually explicit.
