A Makeup Lesson from an Unlikely Source

Since a number of us are slogging through NaNo, and even more of us are prepping for the holidays, I thought we could all use a chuckle and a reminder of how much fun  creativity and imagination can be….

My husband and I love getting drawings from my six and a half year old nephew, B, and from my almost five year old niece, T. Here's what they sent us the other day:

A portrait of Larry the tortoise, done by B - 


A portrait of Mrs. Larry the tortoise, done by T - 


A close up of the Mrs. Larry drawing - 


Give it a good look. Okay?

Now here's what's written on the back - 

MRS. LARRY WEARING LIPSTICK

(If only I looked as good wearing lipstick. Sigh. Have a good day, everyone!)

    1. They've done a number of drawings but these two of the tortoises are my favorites. So far. :)

  5. How adorable. It's been a lot of years since the frig was covered with art work. I kind of miss it.

    1. We actually hung these on the tortoises' tank. :)

      Maybe you could do some of your own art work and hang that on the fridge. :)

  7. Great drawings. Perhaps you could try getting your nephew and niece to do your lipstick?

  8. LOL! So cute. I love getting drawings from the kids. And Annalisa took the words right out of my mouth. I'd love to find that shade of lipstick too! :D

    1. I bet that particular shade is called something like Color de Crayola. :)

  9. LOL! Kids are amazing. Whew! My daughter has recently started asking to wear makeup, and I'm not going to lie. I don't like it. I mean, what 8 year old needs lipstick and eye shadow and blush? And how did she even get indoctrinated anyway? I mean, we home school for heaven sakes!

    1. Eek! Maybe you can convince her that Chapstick is close enough to makeup?
