Toddlers and Art Appreciation or Matisse and potty training

I often meet up with a girlfriend to go into the city during the week. There is often a few fun things on plus being out of suburbia brightens my mood and saves me from feeling being overwhelmed from the suburban mum park-itius.

Miss s is a huge fan of public art, specifically sculpture.  Having a toddler has given me a new appreciation for my surroundings. Who knew Perth had so many amazing public sculptures!

Miss s loves the frog who lives in the little sound park next to the city museum.

This is miss s' favourite sculpture.  It is Der Rufer (The Caller) by Gerhard Marcks.  She loves his feet and toes and how he had both hands around his mouth shouting. Sometimes at night after our bath time we look look at the photos we have taken that day.  This statue was specifically requested.

My personal favourite? 
You know your child is understanding some concept of potty training when she labels a Matisse nude going "potty" (at the top of her voice as only a toddler can). 

The security guard was in a fit of giggles.
