"If It Comes Back, It's Yours..."

Darren loves the Boomerang Channel. Sarah loves the Boomerang Channel. Daddy and I do, too.

When ever-so-kindly asked by the marvelous mama of Best Family Diaries to contribute a guest post, the inspiration was right there on the screen. Please go over and read the perhaps controversial (TV-centric) post, and make a point to make a comment, dive in and check out her's wonderful! (*Thanks so much for the invitation, Mrs. Best!)

And here, a related over-artwork discussion:

Sarah: "What's that you're drawing?"
Darren: "It's Magilla Gorilla."
Sarah: "It doesn't look like Magilla Gorilla. It looks like a duck."
Mommy: "Sarah, remember what I said about if you have nothing nice to say?"
Darren: "I'm not done yet..."
Sarah: "Well, it really does look like a duck."
Darren: "You really look like a duck."

Suppose I shouldn't have addressed my admonition solely to Sarah...

LOL! Ok, so sounds about right.
My boys (usually henry & teddy) have very similar conversations as the "over critique" each other.
Great drawing!

His picture was fabulous, you've got to send that in to the network.

I am hoping they pick up The Adventures of Gumby and Pokey.

Wow that picture is wonderful!! Kids are amazing in the way they draw and color - I'd frame that one, it's fantastic! Cute little back and forth between them too - "you look like a duck." ha ha.

Oh - and ♥ that Circuit City video!

"You really look like a duck". That's hilarious! Just the thing a brother would say. :)
