Magdalena, the artist

The other day Magdalena drew this–ink on a sticky note. I know as her mother I am biased, but isn’t this pretty good for someone who just turned 3? It caught me off guard. In the past her artwork has consisted mostly of scribbles with an occasional letter, rainbow, or circle with a few limb-like appendages. She wasn’t even looking at a picture. And she’s never seen a mouse in person that she would remember. And I can’t think of a specific book or movie where she would have seen this, although that must be where she got it from.
