Me meme

  I have been tagged by the lovely Looking for Blue Sky to participate in this " me meme".  Although it isn't really about me-but rather, how my kids perceive me-through drawing.   With the exception of Oscar-the herd loves to draw. Page after page of drawings.  The girls are most interested in drawing ponies..colorful ponies, winged ponies, ponies playing games, ponies eating ice cream..ponies at school, ponies at play..happy ponies, sad ponies..angry ponies, ponies on the wrong side of the law..ponies gone wild. Ponies all day all the time.  Sammy on the other hand draws action heroes..thousands of them. Really-the boy goes through paper. Reams of much paper...tree's fear him. He also INSISTS on saving every single one of those papers.  This is a picture of roughly six weeks worth of drawings. I worry about fire safety...and winding up on an episode of "Hoarders"
I am excited to participate in this meme-because, for all the drawing three of them do-They have never drawn a picture of me. So here are the rules..

  • Ask your child to draw a picture of you. It doesn’t matter how old they are…
  • Post the picture on your blog.
  • Call it the ‘This is Me Meme’.
  • Pop over to here and add to the linky.
  • Then tag some others
So, I asked the herd to draw just me-and here is what they came up with.   It was kind of interesting to see their perspective.  I did not know my head was so big!  Oh, and just for your information-I do not wear dresses with hearts or bows in my hair-nor is my body triangle shaped. I also do NOT suffer from jaundice.  Out of all of them- I  think Oscar caught the essence of me....

This is Zoe's...

This is Lily's

This is Oscar's..he remembered my glasses..

This is Sammy's..

 Of course, I love every single one of them-they are all so different. I couldn't tell you which is the most accurate-because it is my kids perception.  So, in order to bring in even more perspective, I have added a picture of what I usually look like-you be the judge.

  This is how I usually look. Drinking coffee, doing laundry, in the kitchen,  and always wearing cool shoes.

Now for my tags. I chose the following bloggers because I have read so much about their kids-I want to see what their kids say about them-with drawings.




Big Daddy Autism

So go forth my fellow bloggers-tag you're it!

Um, Oscar's is, um, interesting? I'm gonna give it a try. Thanks for tagging me?

Btw, talked about Oscar at dinner tonight. My boy had a bit of nametag fun with our waiter. I'll be blogging about it soon.

Loved this; what a laugh I am having! The pictures are great. Sammy's - I love the shoulders and eyebrows, Oscars - I think he is trying to capture your um energy :), Lil's - I love the neck. She, like Sammy, got it right. You know I have always envied your neck. Somehow I think you stole part of mine., Zoes's - Her picture is so lovely and sweet. She loves her mom and her mom loves her. Loved your picture. I might even like the shoes!:) Love, Ei

Love those pictures kathleen! Your kids put in so much effort :) Angel was the artist in this house and I have a suitcase full of her pictures that I am not allowed to throw out...

Lizbeth said...

We all know the kids are borrowning your pony books to draw....we have proof, right by your bedside. ;) LOL

That is too cool to see how each one of the children see you. At least they didn't have you with a broom or mop in your hands!
