Ava and TV
Thought I'd show you guys a sketch I did of Ava while she was watching TV a couple of months ago. Whenever they show the bad guy on the particular show or movie she's watching at the time, she'll stand up and do this strange dance in front of the TV: a sort of karate-style jumping while punching at the TV screen, as if she's fighting the bad dude. It's her way of dealing with something, or in this case, someone, she doesn't like.
When I showed her this sketch of her performing her fighting ballet, she wanted to draw too. I was afraid she'd scribble all over my drawing, assuming that perhaps she'd relive the bad scenario that was on TV moments before, but no -- she drew what's on TV. I love it. (And notice that the character she drew has an 'x' over it -- again, something she does to show she doesn't like it.)
(And oh, I know that I borrowed heavily from Bill Watterson here, with the TV up in the air, but I don't care. It's a great visual.)
