I'm having a painting done of DS's name (Hunter) where an animal or child-friendly object of that letter is painted underneath the corresponding letter (eg: Helicopter under "H", Tractor under "T", elephant under "E" and rabbit under "R") but I'm a bit stuck for ideas for "n" and "u".

The best I've come up with is "nest" and "umbrella". Boring. Anyone got any better ideas???  wacko.gif

I originally thought of unicorn - but is it a little too feminine for a boys room (DH assures me it's very phallic but I'm not convinced  laughing2.gif )

I'm not putting underwear in a painting on my son's wall! roll2.gif

I also considered numbat but thought it might be a little too obscure. Keep 'em coming ladies, it's very useful!

Get your hands on Anamalia (is that how you spell it?) by Graeme Base- that'll give you some inspiration. I'd pull my copy out and have a look but I've just got bubba to sleep and I'm not risking going in there!
