Violet decided that she wanted to draw Tigger the other day. I have no idea what prompted Tigger to be her subject of choice, as she isn't super into Winnie the Pooh and hadn't read any of the books or watched the movie recently, but she regardless she knew that she wanted to draw Tigger and wanted some help in doing so. So we sat down and started to talk it out. Here's a little snippet of how our conversation went (spoiler: I got schooled):
V: What should I dwaw first?
Me: Well, Tigger has an oval-shaped body, why don't you start with that?
V: What's an oval-shaped?
Me: An oval is kind of like a circle but longer.
Nice job! He has a circle head and circle ears.
V: Continues to draw Tigger's head and face.
Me: Those are nice eyes!
V: No, those aren’t EYES! Those are his cheeks like when he loves someone!
Me: Who does he love?
V: I don’t know, can you sink? (think)
Me: Maybe he met a girl tigger?
V: No, a boy tigger to fall in love with!
Me: Oh, is Tigger a girl or is he a boy who loves another boy?
V: He’s a boy who loves another boy.
Me: Okay, next draw four legs.
V: No, Mommy, he walks like a people! He only has TWO legs you silly!
Me: Oh, right!
V: Draw High Heels, because everyone has high heels, wight?
Me: Draws high heels
V: No not high heels like a lady! High heels like a MAYUN!
Me: Okay, how about black stripes?
V: He has ORANGE stripes too!
Me: True, true.
V: And these are his loooong looong toes. There! Perwfect.
I'm excited for when Lucy starts talking and I can get a little peek into the inner workings of her little mind as well. You never know what you'll find :) xo, Lauren
