The other day Flo drew this while we were doing chores around the house. We flipped out – I mean, a skeleton? How does she know how to draw a skeleton head and torso? We saw her drawing, she wasn’t looking at anything.
I asked her some questions about it tonight:
Mom: So Flo, what’s going on in this picture?
Flo: It’s like a map.
M: Oh! Neat. Explain it to me?
F: Well the princess is in the air and looking down below.
M: At the ground?
F: The ground, the water, all that mélanged together.
M: And who’s this guy?
F: He’s a Skelette.
M: What’s his name?
M: What’s he doing?
F: He’s scaring people, but he’s nice.
M: Oh right. Is he alive?
F: Of course he’s alive! (finds this question funny). Skeletons are always alive!
M: Do you know you have a skeleton in your body?
F: Yes, cause I have bones. Like these ones (shows ankle, wrist)
M: What’s your favourite bone in your body?
F: Oh, my ribs for sure.
