my melt heart....

a recent letter i received from my daughter as i was off on a wedding in Texas:

Dear Dad, I love you. When you're off the airplane I love you so much. And, if you come off the plane I need you to hug me when you're off and we come and pick you up. My tooth is hurting and I'm going to the dentist and I need you to comfort me. Love, Alanna

yes, times as these make your "melt heart"...(a term i fumbled when talking to my wife that we still laugh at)

angry face

i came home from work to find this angry face scowling at me as it was taped to the fridge...not your typical chicken or rooster or cow that would so commonly adorn the walls of a kitchen, but no, a black-masked angry face with stained glue dripping from it's under turned mouth. what exactly is my 5 year old daughter Alanna wanting to say?
and so i asked her, "honey, i love it!...but why did you do an angry face?" "I just wanted to make an angry face"...phewww. you never know what your kids are saying inside, and i believe their art is some of the purest form of communication - if this picture has no subconsciene spewing forth...and it is nothing more than an experiment of creating different expressions - then hey! i'm happy! and keep creating kid!
