Since my daughter's first day of preschool, I've been drawing dinosaurs on her napkins that go in her lunchbox. I try not to repeat any species, but sometimes she requests one of her favorites (triceratops and tyrannosaurus rex). It's a little reminder to her in the middle of her day that I love her.

She chooses a classmate to give her napkins to after lunch, so I started taking photos of them about a year ago and posting them on Instagram as a way to archive them for her.

While I love your drawings... This Dinos mouth is going to give me nightmares EDIT: ok, maybe I phrased that badly... What i meant is that I find this dino scary. Also, when I posted this comment the first time, it was at 11:00 PM and I actually DID dream about it.
