My 3 year old is a genius and your 3 year old eats boogers!

Okay... well maybe not {at least the boogers part}. And I am sure your 3 year old is a genius too. What mother hasn't thought exactly that. C'mon, even you "saints" have thought your child was brilliant above all others at least once before. 

It's been six months since I posted G's Evolution of {Man} I can still remember that feeling of pride when Gigi's scribbles turned into discernible shapes. Circles with eyes and arms and legs that were clearly people.  I knew that there would be more pride filled moments in the near future. There were! School, gymnastics, swimming, her first dance recital, in front of the throngs of people at a local holiday festival that she rocked!! There have been so many moments since July.... Then the other day Gigi wrote her name. Not traced it, wrote it! All.By.Herself! My heart was bursting!! Then she drew me a picture of herself making a snow-angle and I knew exactly what it was!  Counting, reading, picking out letters and all the fantastic things she's learned in preschool this year are so amazing, but for whatever reason, today when she said she was going to paint me this.... and I again recognized it right away......would have even if she hadn't told me what she was going to paint! The best part is the whole thing started with a few random splatters on the page. Gigi looked at the first few dots and splatters though for a moment, looked at me and said "I'm going to paint you a....!" So proud of my 3 year old genius!

Can you guess what it is??
I'll give you a hint, the color is accurate!

No no, you're right. My 3 year old hid behind me while we were talking to Grams and Gramps on Skype so that he could pick his nose without getting yelled at.
