"My sweet, adorable, pigtailed 4-year-old lovingly drew me this picture. It’s a dead My Little Pony. Why is it dead? Why did she take the time to lovingly craft a dead cartoon heroine and gift it to her doting mother? She did not say. She was, however, very proud of it and insisted it go on the fridge."

"This is a picture my son drew of his future self for career day. I freaked out because I see a person bleeding out, blood splattered on the walls, and a child screaming. I thought, Oh crap, my son wants to be a serial killer! –but he says he wants to be a gynecologist. Which freaks me out in a whole other way… My 5-year-old wants to be a gynecologist!"
