Home Spun comic strip #202

In hindsight, I realize that the problem is she's just like me.

Flashback time:
I was trying to teach Marina, then 8 (?), how to draw a self-portrait, but she was so frustrated because she couldn't get it to look like her. In my defense, I thought her drawing was really good for her age and skill level, considering she had only spent a few minutes working on it. To show her how hard it is to draw an accurate likeness that fast, I did a quick line drawing of her face. Of course, I didn't think it looked good, but she did. Like mother, like daughter.

Drawing a self portrait sounds pretty daunting to me at any age.
It's good to be back blogging again after a longer time away than we expected. Hope you've had a good February.
Blessings,
Paula

Ha!!
That made me laugh.
Isn't it true. I wish God put labels on the kids that said: This kid is like you in Such & such way. That way we could be prepared.

I got such a kick out of this strip and story behind it, which I did not know or maybe just didn't remember. And yes, Marina is so like you. How wonderful!

Love, Mom
