Birthday Child with the Imaginary Uncles He Didn’t Know He Wanted at the Time
One of our kids just had a significant birthday, marking his transition into official teenhood.
The birthday elicited reminiscing about his receding youth. We spent some time looking at a disk of photos from kindergarten. (Though it was challenging- at this point, we only have one ancient computer in the house that has a disk drive)
For the birthday napkin- and to thwart facial recognition software-I thought I would draw him as a five year old. He is posed with two of his favorite characters from the present day...because violent and horror themed characters hanging around a small child is quite amusing to snarky teens.
I’m pretty sure he was familiar with the Batman Animated version of the Joker as a five year old, but fortunately Pennywise was not present in any format.
Sadly, the Nightwing t-shirt doesn’t fit anymore.
