Carina: Aw Emma, I'm no good at drawing.
(I start to draw a flower).
Emma: No Mommy, down here.
(I draw lower).
Emma: No Mommy, over here.
(I finally draw the flowers to her specifications.
Emma: Now make a rainbow.
(I start to draw a rainbow).
Emma: No Mommy, over here. Over here!
(I draw the rainbow where she says).
Emma: Mommy, now draw a sun.
Carina: Can I draw the sun over here?
Emma: No, over here.
(I draw the sun where she says.)
Emma: That's pretty Mommy, but it's missing one.
(She points to the rays of sunshine I had drawn off the sun.)
Carina: Are you serious? You have a specific number of rays of sunshine you need on your sun? Forget this. You can draw it yourself.
