"A pirate?? I'm not so sure I can draw a pirate, bubby."
"No, my pirates!"
"Honey, I'm not that great at drawing, I don't know how else to draw a pirate." I shrug while I turn around and think about a stick-figure parrot.
I'm squatting next to the mini chalk outline of my (as of today) three year old- wondering if I can actually make this little chalk body look something like a pirate. How does he know the word "pirate" anyway? Has that been a recent topic in our home?
I swivel back to see what has caught his attention- surprised to see him pulling down his pants...
"Mom, Draw. My. PIRATES!"
Privates are ALWAYS a topic in our home....
