Doing exactly as I'm told

Jamie likes drawing, but he really likes telling me what to draw. He fires off instructions rapid fire and it's always 'Jamie, Maia, Mommy, Daddy, Sun, Moon, Jamie, Maia, Peppa, Dinosaur' Apologies that the verissimilitude is less than perfect for all depictions, the instructions are rapid fire and I struggle to keep up.

He has recently gotten into the Christmas spirit and yesterday he started to do a drawing by himself... Remembering that it's more fun to tell Mom what to do, I was given his sweet potato shaped drawing as a starting block and was ordered to draw. Here is a catalogue of his requests:
  • Snowman
  • Snowman's nose
  • Snowman's eyes
  • Ice cream on Snowman's eye
  • Eyebrows
  • Snowman's tongue
  • Hat
  • Ice cream on Snowman's hat
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Fingers
  • Ice Cream on Snowman's fingers. Two Ice creams on Snowman's fingers.
  • Chest
  • Ice Cream on Snowman's chest
  • Tummy button. Three tummy buttons. Ice cream on tummy button
  • Snowman's feet
  • Snowman's toes
  • Snowman's knees
  • Ice Cream on Snowman's knees. Two Ice creams on Snowman's knees.

Now that's my kind of Snowman!
