Sappy Sentimental Sketching

This toy tractor hangs out in our backyard - it's one of those oversize ones, best for toddlers. Thing is, I don't have any toddlers any more. I mean, they still play with this, but not the same amount or in the same way. It's well on the way to getting donated to a real toddler.

While sketching it - and seeing it a lot more deeply of course while I did that - I got all melancholy about how this toy sitting there represents just how fleeting childhood is. I know, total sappy goop. Sorry. Sigh.
