G-Force 7 1/2

Smart. Imaginative. Independent. Creative. Hilarious. Sweet. Stubborn. Fun. Those are just some of the words I could use to describe my 7 1/2 year-old daughter. But one of the most fun and imaginative things about her is her willingness to dive into certain shows or characters or movies and not come out of the water until she’s completed everything about it. Yes, this is normal kid behavior. Thankfully.

It started with Dora the Explorer, as it does with most little girls nowadays. Simultaneously dabbling in Clifford and Blue’s Clues. But Spongebob Squarepants changed all that baby stuff. Next up was the Disney Princesses. Then she hit the Godzilla phase. Had to watch every Godzilla movie, which of course Dad had on DVD or VHS (there are three G movies not available in the US on DVD ugh), in order natch. Then came The Simpsons phase, where she watched every available season on DVD, Seasons 1 through 13 and 20 (Yes, Dad has them all), watched all the episodes in order and quotes them endlessly bless her heart, focusing on my favorite episodes bless her heart again. Now she’s on the Pokemon phase, DVRing old episodes and newer episodes and buying cards with her own money and video games.

But the reason for this post is not to chronicle my daughter’s life actually, but mostly to share/show off photos of some awesome and imaginative artwork she created during Godzilla phase #3 (she cycles back and forth with these phases) during downtime at school. Funny enough, the only other character she’s drawn is Spongebob. Love this kid! Enjoy the pics!
