A Portrait of a Young Artist

This is a picture of Andy, Joe's dad. Notice the mustache, large eyes and big smile. Pretty accurate.

The most memorable day as a mom for me thus far, was the moment when I was able to open up a fresh box of crayons with Joe and see which color crayon he favored and what his first scribbles would look like. I have no idea why this was such a big deal to me, but it was because I cried. Flash forward to today and I'm swimming in doodles. Some are keepers. Some are not. Does it make me a jerk because I don't save everything?

I heard on the news that an original Andy Warhol was found at a garage sale. It was done when he was 9 years old and it's worth well over a million dollars. If Joe is the next Andy Warhol, then I'm screwed.

Moms, how do you determine what to keep and what to trash?

  1. Since you really can't keep everything, including school work,you let your child pick. So, if you have five pieces of "work", let your child pick out one to keep in a container. Dole out the "non-keepers" to grandparents and toss the rest.
