Theme Thursday--Self Portrait

I decided to let the kiddos do a mommy portrait, 
each child drawing in a box
 what they thought of
when they thought of me.
I think it's a keeper.

  3. This is a great idea! I love it. And that your 13 year old associates you with smiles? Awesome. That's a parenting win right there.

  7. Very good artists you have there!

    I like them all.

    I want to look like that skinny model too...HOWEVER..she is probably only 19 yrs old and has never ever ever had a baby so she loses big time.

    we win.we have babies!

  10. I'm just going to repeat everyone here... so I'm just going to let out a giant "aww" and pray that some day my children see me with the same light and joy. Wonderful.

  16. I wonder how mine would turn out? Yours is awesome! You do have kids who like to draw and are pretty good at it, as well. Mine would probably be five with a quick pencil drawing stick figure and one looking a little more colorful and artsy!!
