What is going on in that brain of yours?

(You may need to click on the image to see the detail labels)

My 7 yo son had the school assignment to: "Draw the inside of your refrigerator with your favorite foods inside"simple, straightforward- right.

This is what I got...

I explained to him as an artist I appreciated his creativity immensely, but questioned whether this was the given assignment as this is a rather fantastical interpretation of the inside of any fridge!

I labelled it so you could appreciate it fully- and note these are his favorites- grapefruits, olives, colby jack cheese, key lime yogurt...

(but seriously now- drips of grease falling from the ham? what is going on in that brain of yours?)

1. creativity 7 yo brains
2. black olives
3. the everyday amusements of motherhood

He should at least get points for creativity! That is a paper to save. His wife will get a good laugh because of it someday.

Wow, that is pretty amazing. And he picked healthy things as well. My first pick would have been my hubby's leftover pizza in there. :-)
