Last weekend I was at the library doing some research. When enough work had been accomplished to my satisfaction, I rewarded myself with a break to write in my journal. But upon cracking the journal open, the pages dropped to reveal a mural done by my 5yo.
Now while the mural she created was awesome, my head still exploded. It covered many pages and depicted a Captain Caveman type character who had many friends doing many things. Yet despite the awesome details: it was in the MIDDLE OF MY WONDER WOMAN WRITING JOURNAL. My Wonder Woman private thoughts journal had been violated. *sigh*
So it goes when becoming a parent.
Anyway. That mural is not her renaissance contribution this week, her secret garden is -- or at least I think it's the entrance her secret garden. Like the Captain Caveman mural I mentioned above, it was found in a place that made my head explode: the walls of my 5yo's room.
Behind my daughter's bedroom door is a smaller door, done in Sharpie and highlighter (*double gulp* that door is permanent as permanent is) and where it leads? She won't tell me. I'm completely fascinated by this door and where she imagines it leads. She says I will never know because it's not a door for moms to use. *triple sigh*
