How I Look to a Seven-Year Old...

Hey y'all!  

So, Kid B came home the other day, proudly displaying this family portrait he'd drawn. 

"Me, Carter, Dad, Mom"

Let's skip asking why Kid B has given himself two faces (is this some deep psychological self-awareness? Is it his inner muse? Or is the second face a pig face from Angry Birds? My money's on the Angry Birds theory) and take a closer look at me. 




I agree he got the arms (flippers?) dead right. And my legs really are flatter on the inside. My bigger questions are... why am I number 4? Why is my torso divided in half? Okay, maybe that second question makes sense. Where did my fingers go? Did I lose them in a freak lawn mower accident?

My favorite part -- besides the accurate portrayal of the fact that my hair is falling out due to faulty flat irons -- is the lip-to-face ratio. 



Apparently, I arrive at all destinations lips first.

    1. I just noticed the three boys in the family have hair. I'm the only bald one.

  3. At least you HAVE a body. We just got past the heads-attached-to-legs stage.

    1. Kid B just barely got out of the Body-attached-directly-to-feet stage! I'm so happy to have legs!

  4. Must have been a family freak lawn mower accident that Kid B somehow missed out on. I love kids drawings. They're always entertaining.

  6. :-) I'm loving this. He just noticed that you always have expressive lips so he had to make sure they stood out. Hey, you'll give Angela Jolie a run for her money in the "gorgeous pouty lips" competition.
