Pretend Fish with Balloons

1.19.2010

We had our FHE last night with two honored guests, Grandma and Grandpa Ahern. We went through the lesson as planned and talked about family member's responsibilities. Then came the activity where we each drew a portrait of our family. Matt, Ella and I all turned out a variety of funny portraits showing our family members with crazy clothes, funny hair and big smiles. But then we saw Evangeline's picture.

It looked like this...

She pointed out Ella, Daddy and herself. "But, Where's Mommy?" I asked.
She grabbed a crayon and got back to work. And this was added to the picture...


"Is that Mommy?" I asked.
"No, that a fish for Ella in a bowl." she replied.
"So....there's an imaginary fish, but NO Mommy?" I asked and then added, "If it's a picture of your family....so you should draw Mommy!"

She grabbed a crayon and got back to work. And this was added to the picture...


Finally I was included!
"Oh, there's Mommy! And I'm all green!" I exclaimed.

To which she replied, "No, that's not Mommy! That's a balloon for the fish."

And I left it at that.
Mommies get no respect!
We all laughed until our cheeks hurt.
Just another touching FHE moment brought to you by the Ahern family.
