artistic criticism: from a three year old

Braylon received some clay for Christmas and has been wanting to play with it ever since. Tonight I gave in and we spent a little time rolling it and then {trying} to create miniature animals as pictured in the pamphlet that came with it. I made a blue shark, it was awesome, at least I thought my 3 year old would think so.

b: oh... I'm sorry Mom, that's not a shark... I'm sorry, its not a shark.
{shaking his head sadly}
me: It's a shark, it looks just like the picture
b: I'm sorry, it's not a shark
{as he rolls my masterpiece into a mixed-color clay ball}

Hahah, of all the people in the world at least our kids should be impressed with us! At least Arin is still at the stage where he thinks me rolling Play-doh into a ball is an amazing talent, guess that won't last long!
