When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

How Your Child See’s You – Meme

I was ‘tweeted’ this week by Karen who blogs over on themumstodolist about this great Meme where our child/ren draw a picture of how they see us as mummies.Obviously Joshua cant even draw yet and to be fair he would only eat the crayon so big sister Beth (11yrs) stepped in and was quite excited ….. what was i thinking??

So this evening i was presented with this: Imagei

I am very very pleased with this i have to say, my hair is nice and thick and she said she made it straight as “you always straighten it”  i am nicely in proportion which is the bit i am most pleased about, as really i am a shorty at 5″ and carrying rather too much of the baby weight for my liking, however she obviously doesn’t see that 🙂

However what i think has shocked me the most is i have a big grin!  Now as some of you may or may not know my daughter and i are experiencing a few issues, her pre-teen hormones and my inability to be able to reason, cajole, argue or even get an honest answer from her is driving me insane, so needless to say most of the time i am experiencing life through gritted teeth. So maybe she doesn’t see the gritted teeth or the frustration?? This is good!!

Looking at the eyes i think she must think i am some sort of demon, however i can live with that 🙂

I am now going to ask some others to join in the fun:
