it could have been worse

Yesterday, the writing prompt I gave my first graders for their journal was "I pet my _______" (because our story is called "Dan's Pet").

"Bobby" finished his work, then showed me proudly:
"That's great!" I say, "But what's that coming out of your cat?"

"It go pee-pee!", he announced.

And here you go again, just in case you missed it:
I just about died laughing, which made it hard to lecture him about appropriate and inappropriate pictures....

Very fitting for a Monday! I kind of want to frame it and hang it in my office and when I am having a bad day I can look at it for a good laugh!

Many questions about this peeing cat. The main one being, "Does it pee when you pet it, Bobby?" But a close second is, "Why is your cat red?"

Well, at least the cat looks happy with the peeing and petting...

I'd say he was just being realistic. But then there's the cat being red. Oh well.

I think that cat might have an infection, cause something is inflamed down there....

LOL - that's hilarious! My 3 year old did something similar with a dog she drew, but it wasn't quite as...refined, shall we say, as this portrait!

Happy almost-Thursday!
