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!)

At least it wasn't Mr. Larry wearing the lipstick!

Aw, those are great! Kids are so wonderfully creative!

Ha ha ha! :)

I know, right? I wish I could harness some of that imagination for myself.

The creativity of children never ceases to amaze me :)

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Don't you sometimes wish you could just bottle it up? :)

Maurice Mitchell said...

What an amazing set artwork. I'm sure they'll nurture his creative nature and make even more wonders.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

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

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

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

Annalisa Crawford said...

I've been looking for that shade of lipstick!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

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

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

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I'm sure Mrs. L will let you know where she got it.... :)

Simon Kewin said...

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

Elise Fallson said...

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

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I'm pretty sure they would do a better job…. :)

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

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

Crystal Collier said...

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!

Priceless! And so, so adorable.

Tyrean Martinson said...

I love that! Mrs. Larry wearing lipstick! Just the thing to make my day. :)

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

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

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I agree!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I know! Every time I look at the picture itself or here on the blog, it makes me smile. :)

This looks so cute! I always enjoy looking at children's artwork.

Children's artwork is really something special. :)
