My daughter has been getting into art and particularly drawing "portraits" of family members. I got a cold, hard look at exactly how she sees me in my various moods. It's funny but should I also be examining just how my moods affect her?
And no, my hair is not purple in real life.
This is my 5-year-old's rendition of me in a happy mood.
It's hard to tell but my eyes are green in this picture. She's very fond of giving women heart-shaped mouths.
All-in-all, not the worst portrait of me and certainly better than some photos I've seen of myself.
This is my daughter's drawing of me in a sad mood. I think it's interesting how she changed the shape of my eyes to reflect the mood change (although I never realized my eyes turned pink when I was sad)
This is the most amusing and potentially troubling portrait. This is apparently me when I'm mad.
I didn't think I bared my teeth like that - well maybe to my husband sometimes - but I guess I have to work on that with my kids.
At least I still have the cool purple hair.
