Gorgeous?! My four year-old, Ada Jewel, drew this portrait of me today. It reminds me of everything I WISH I was doing: wearing pink, enjoying fine weather, and walking in a field of blue berries! Coming off of a couple of days of Stressed Mommy, I’m glad this is how I turned out in the picture.
This picture reminds me of one that got away before I could preserve it digitally. Last week during church I was entertaining my son Jesse with drawing prompts such as, Draw a picture of what you love about your Mom and Dad. His picture of Dan at the piano was charming – little black keys and everthing. I was actually a little excited to see what he might draw me doing. Would I be teaching or singing? Maybe I’d be out in the rose garden or dancing with Macy?
Jesse handed me the paper with a smile. I looked at my caricature. What’s that in my hands, Jess?
“Macaroni and Cheese! ‘Cause I love it when you cook!”
Kids are great for affirming your identity! : )
