"Katie's Brothers and Dog: Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Victor, Harry, and Sparky"
by Katie Poter (sic)
Katie drew this picture of her brothers, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Victor from the movie "Frankeneweenie," and Harry Potter. And their dog Sparky, also from "Frankenweenie".
She did this at home, but she said earlier in the day she wrote a journal entry about Sparky and, "All the kids looked at me when my teacher read it and said, 'You like dead dogs'?"
"Well, did you explain to her you're talking about a movie and not real dead dogs?"
"Well, um, I think I did."
If we don't get a note home from her teacher we can assume she's seen the movie and understands. If not, it will be interesting to try to explain that no, our daughter is not currently fascinated by real dead dogs, but fake dead dogs on movies and made into stuffed animals she carries around with her everywhere she goes.
