So proud of our little artiste

Daughter #2 (identified in previous blog entries as “Malfoy”), age 4, is an artist. She’ll tell you so, herself. Unlike most kids, who say, “I’m gonna be an artist when I grow up,” she says, “I’m an artist.” All matter-of-fact-like.

Unlike most artists, she’s quite confident in social situations.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, for instance, we visited the largish home of some richish family friends who were having a big, fancy party. Mrs. Family Friend and Malfoy have an unusually close friendship, despite a 46-year age difference and only a few meetings. In fact, Mrs. FF left her other big, fancy party guests to fend for themselves while she and Malfoy went in the other room to refresh their lipstick and spritz perfume.

As we exited the FF’s manse that evening, I told Malfoy how proud I was because she was such a good girl at the FF’s party. And all matter-of-fact-like, she said, “And I didn’t even toot.”

(So proud…)

Luckily, Mrs. FF didn’t offer our little artiste any crayons and paper, else she and her other big, fancy party guests might’ve been treated to something like this recent Malfoy original:

So proud…

About Julie Jaret

Julie Jaret is an American screenwriter with one feature film produced and some others on deck. Her alter-ego needed an outlet, so here we are. Julie lives in the southeast U.S. with her sexy and supportive husband, two funny and beautiful kids, and one big doofus of a dog. She enjoys living vicariously through her fictional characters, often to the point of distraction... (Luckily, her hubby and kids know not to expect dinner at a certain time. Or at all.)
