Princess picks up a leaf and puts it in her trailer. I take it out saying it’s a bit shabby and she picks up another one. Finally we have a trailer full of leaves that meet my stict criteria.
We go home and get out a sheet of paper and a glue stick. The Princess chews meditatively on the glue stick. I arrange the leaves in pretty patterns on the page. The Princess refuses to surrender the glue stick. I remove it from her by main force and use it to stick my pretty leaves on the sheet of paper. She wails throughout the procedure. I return the glue stick to her. She chews on it while removing my prettily patterned leaves from the page and wiping them one by one on her tights. There is a brief tussle wherein I use my superior force to remove from her little fists leaves, paper and glue stick.
When she goes for her nap, I stick back all the leaves on the paper, write her name and the date on the end of the sheet and hang it on the wall.
Is there something wrong with this picture?

Nope – not that I can see.
(That leaf she chose first was pretty manky.)

She’ll sue. She will you know.

nah, she’s learning the valuable lesson that if you want something doing properly you’ve got to do it yourself…

Art critics can be difficult that way.

I fear that Pog has the right of it, but I like the way the rest of you are thinking.
