...enroll in an art class


Apparently, she needs some guidance with respect to: how-to-draw-portraits?

You be the judge....

Here is a portrait she drew of me this evening (while I was minding my own business, reading to the big kids):

Our conversation:

Audrey:  Hey mommy look at the picture I drew for you!  It is yooouu!  (spoken most             joyfully!) 
Me:  Oh? (long pause)  It is? 
Audrey:  Well here are your eyes.  To help you see better.  Four of them.
               And a rainbow head 'cause it's pretty. 
Me:  Oh?  That is my head? 
Audrey:  No.  Ooops.  Soorrrry.  (all in the tone of a slightly bemused sorority girl)   I mean its your big, giant belly.


My whiny thoughts:

Did she have to use so many adjectives?

Does she really think I have green fuzz in my belly button?

Perhaps I should have accepted her description as my head; and hoped she made it so large in order to accommodate all of my brains...

  1. Ha ha ha!! Love it!! That's funny. Look... we're no artists over here either. Focus on your "real" strengths I tell James. Ha ha... I love the block head she gave you. That's a keeper for sure! XO
