Jasper loves to draw. A lot. Every day he comes home from school with a stack of new drawings to add to our art collection at home. And he insists on hanging most of these drawings in his room or on a few walls around our apartment.
A few weeks ago, Scary Mommy shared some portraits that her children have drawn of her. They are hilarious but I suggest that you put down your coffee before clicking over.
After reading this post, I went looking through Jasper’s drawing to find his collection of portraits. I’ve always loved his portraits. Everyone is usually so smily and happy. And I love that Everett is always the shortest and squattest of them all – well, because he is.
I love that we have big round bellies (clearly we’re well-fed) and pine cone hands (the better to grasp things?).
I think that this is the first portrait that he drew of me. My legs look kind of short and my hips a bit boxy. Are the blue marks on my face supposed to be my chubby cheeks? And it looks like I’m having a bad hair day but at least I’m giving him hugs.
In this family portrait, I have nice long legs but still having a bad hair day.
Apparently, all the women in my family have afros. But everyone has a belly button.
Here is his latest portrait, drawn earlier this week. My hair seems to have been tamed and coifed and I have my dream eyelashes – they’re so long! But how did we progress from the picture above to here so quickly?? I’m kind of astonished at how his drawings have changed.
Do you kids draw portraits of you? Come on over to my Facebook page and share them with me! You do already like my Facebook page, right?
