My icon is lazy, when held up to this post.

I saw the LJ spotlight of mission101_2009 and was intrigued. So, on December 31st, while babysitting in Long Beach, I set M up with paints and a freshly assembled wooden helicopter, sat across from him at their kitchen table, and started scribbling. This list is in no particular order, I just transcribed it straight from my original.

I'm curious: What would make your 101?
