Momlogic's Andrea: Sure I think my kid is talented, but she's no Van Gogh.
If there's anything all mothers have in common it's that we all think our kids are artistic geniuses. From the moment of their first scribble on a piece of paper - or usually on the wall - we're amazed at their choice of color, the length and thickness of their lines and the way they can wear down a crayon in 2.5 seconds.
So what compelled me to take a piece of my two-year-old's artwork and shove it into the garbage can? Truth is: I'm already running out of ideas of what to do with all of her pieces of self-expression.
Since starting pre-school a mere three weeks ago, she has brought home these "art projects" daily. It's like we've enrolled her in an arts and crafts sweatshop -- all day long her tiny hands, weary with exhaustion, glue macaroni and cotton balls to construction paper.
When I told a friend I had tossed one of her pictures she freaked out on me:
"I would NEVER throw away anything my kid has done, it's a part of them!"
OK, seriously? Not all art is equal. And I've been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Some of it just isn't that good. Surely not everything is worth saving?
