The Red Hot Chili Pandas



Julia spent quite a while on this picture--the kids were listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers the other day while drawing and reading in a fort made with blankets and our breakfast bar in the kitchen. Quite cozy with sofa pillows and blankets on the floor, a lamp borrowed from the living room, and Molly the cat as extra company. I always love Julia's art, but this one, with its clever take on the Chili Peppers name combined with some of her favorite characters for pretend with Emma and Ben--Ginger is the cat on the drums, Bella is the panda on guitar and is the lead singer (note the bleeped out words, since after all, they ARE the Chili Pandas!) and Kirby is the koala on bass--just cracked me up. Notice too that the unseen (except paws in air) audience is going wild, throwing flowers and hats at the band....

Why is there a cat in the Red Hot Chili Pandas band? xO

RACIST! Haha, the reason is that the cat is Ginger, and integral part of the gang of Ginger, Bella & Kirby...and Julia says that "Red Hot Chili Pandas" sounded best. She thought of "Red Hot Chili Kitties," but I agree--pandas has more of a ring! xo
