Minimalism vs kid's self-esteem
I covered the fridge in thier artwork, it stayed there 15 years. Now one paints portraits to cheer the sick and the other gets college art cheers.
One does cartoons to make Mom a buffoon, but that is the teenage years.
Then our fridge started to "pee" on the floor, so it had to go- to roll out the door. The new fridge makes Dad happy, blank planes he finds snappy.
Minamalist bliss he'll have for a while, then a new chapter of fridge life shall begin its slow smile.
