My Daughter, the Aspiring Artist

My daughter wants to be an artist when she grows up. When Laura draws a picture, Carmen draws the exact same picture a minute later. She's even adopted Laura's signature swirly eye. The funny thing is when I went to Carmen's friend's house, I saw a drawing her friend did with a swirly eye. It's become an epidemic, I tell you. Well, I'm not discouraging her, even though I secretly wish she'll be a doctor. Now I know how parents feel 'cause I am a parent. Here she made some clay characters. Laura made the dog, but she painted it, and the blue guy is all her.

She was also inspired by Laura's "The Love Story of a Spoon." If you don't remember, it was Laura's stop motion picture she made for school. Check it out if you haven't seen it. Here is Carmen's own little video she made that we call "Where's my dog?"

Haha!! I love her video. The best part is "oh, I forgot my name...because I am a forgetter. Ah, bonks." Love it!

I couldn't stop laughing! SO CUTE! I LOVE IT!

I know! I was laughing the whole time too. Carmen is so adorable. And the big dog gag was pure genius. Ah, bonks!
