Oscar, like most kids his age, says the most interesting, hilarious, insightful, innocent and on occasion, embarrassing things. I sometimes lie in bed and crack up telling Aubrey about them at the end of the day. Other days, they make me tear up. As a little project for myself I’m going to do quick sketches of what he occasionally says. I think it will be an interesting way of remembering what he says but also, more importantly for me, a nice reminder of how he views the world. Because they do grow and change rather quickly. And his innocence and views are really heartwarming for me.
conversations with oscar / no. 2 / body parts
Oscar was getting dressed and looked down at his chest and said …. “I have two nickles”. OMG. It took all I had not to burst out laughing at how ridiculously cute I thought this was. I just hugged him. And we now just call them nickles. It’s way cuter.
