If you draw a preschooler a mouse,
She’ll tell you he looks hungry,
and ask you to draw him a plate of cheese.
When you draw the cheese,
she’ll tell you he needs a cracker.
And when she sees your cracker,
she’ll ask you for the pen.
And because it is his birthday,
she’ll want to give him a present.
So she’ll draw him a cell phone,
and a house to live in.
Which is where the cat comes in.
C’mon. You knew The Five-Year-Old would fit a cat into her story somehow, didn’t you?
