|Maybe shoulda used a clown?|
I like to surprise her with educational finds. It's just so much more powerful when the children are confronted with art rather than prepared ahead of time, you know?
The idea came to me just as the child finished pouring ice water down the back of my pajamas during a nice mother-daughter hug.
This particular carved sculpture is FULL of historical goodness. Neilykins picked it up in the wilds of Montreal during a fit of batchelordom. If that isn't cultural, I don't know what is.
Tsk. And here I thought she might find it and be filled with wonder and questions about this breathtaking two foot tall statue, which Neil has lovingly and carefully dubbed, "Evil Guy". I was all prepared to dazzle her with cultural tidbits that she could share with her little friends tomorrow at school during one of their deep, intellectual group conversations.
Well I feel terribly unappreciated right about now.
