Mix 'n' Match Robot Cookies!

What do you do when your little man is feeling crummy?

When I was small, a fever meant a coloring book and a 
brand new box of crayons with pointy points.

I always knew when I was REALLY sick 
because my mom would come home with the box of 64.

So the other day while on fever watch,
(Jack likes to keep us on our toes and spike 104 degree temps just for the heck of it)
I had a thought.

"Jack, if you could have any pet in the whole wide world, 
what would it be?"

"A robot"

Yup, that's what I thought.

I put down the 12th cup of yellow gatorade with a
 'new bendy straw please' and started doodling....

Jack was too miserable to color, but I thought this might make him smile.

Mix and Match Robot Cookies!!!

Four heads....

Four bodies....

Four sets of 'legs'...

Four sets of arms...

...and four sets of antennae!

Mustn't forget to accessorize!

 Funny how they took on their own personalities...

"Please don't make me drink any more of anything....

I'm full up to my eyeballs."

"Hey, Mom's busy with Jack....

where's the Snickers and soda?  Heh heh heh....."


 This thermometer says 104.5.

This one says his temperature is 101.9!!!

Where's the calculator??!!

Where's the Motrin!!!???"

"Who needs a hug?"

All ready for Jack!!!!

"Hey Mom?!  What are these?"

"I made robots for you buddy!"

"Oh Cool!

Can I make him different?"

"Yup.  You can make them look like whatever you want."

"I like these arms"

"Is this one me?"

"Let's change his channel!"

(Here comes big brother.....)

"Cool Jack!  Can I try?!"

"I like the sneaky guy!"


"Yea Jack."

"Don't you have to leave for baseball now?"

"Oh shoot!!!!"

"Thanks, Mom"

"This was fun."

"Cocoa bear liked it too."

"I like this one best!

I used all the spare parts!"

Thanks for stopping by,

Lizy B
