Thanks for the thoughts, everyone. Dh is incredibly artistic and I had thought that he was "interpreting" dd's drawings for her. She's 2.5 years old. But this past week, we were in Istanbul visiting family and dd's cousins has ALL KINDS of art supplies. I guess dh was right... by the end of the week, dd was drawing not just faces, but ladybugs, seals, ghosts, "pumpkin patches" (pumpkins), dogs and other animals... and they were actually kind of recognizable, although for some you had to squint and tilt your head to the right.
Actually, the ladybugs were pretty good and the faces get more features every day.
...Heading out to stock up on art supplies... Thanks again!
