When picking Libbey up from school this afternoon, she took me to the "Wall of Fame" to show off her latest piece of custom artwork. Ms. McElroy had the students draw their favorite animal at the zoo, and Libbey's was the "gurilla." (Precious--spelling phonetically, southern style!)
Just now, my good friend Erika called and she was laughing so hard I could barely understand what she was trying to tell me. Here's our conversation:
Erika: Did Libbey draw a picture of one of the zoo animals?
Me: Yes, a "gurilla!" It was too cute, especially her spelling of gorilla.
Erika: Well, Mrs. Burner had Tatum's class do the same & you are never gonna guess what she drew...
Me: OK, tell me.
Erika: She drew a picture of a meerkat in the center of the page. Then over in the corner, she drew two other meerkats on top of each other, with "meanie" faces, because they were "fighting." Can you believe that was her favorite thing from yesterday?
Totally. Absolutely. Positively. Tatum and I are obviously soul sisters.
