Picture Perfect

My Family Portrait by Z, Age 3
Z has finally begun drawing pictures that are somewhat recognizable to the rest of the world. Her vision has become more than scribbles and dots, but an actual picture of how she views the world around her. This is the first picture of our family.

As you can see, I am pink and the Hubs is black. Had a brown marker been available she most likely would have drawn him with that, since for almost a year now she has been telling us about the pink people and brown people. Everyone falls into these categories. You are either pink or brown. Lately, she has begun describing herself as dark pink (which is funny to me). She talks about her brown Grandma and her pink Grandma and the differences between them incessantly.

I love that she is the most detailed and colorful person in the picture. The attention to detail of herself shows that she cares about her appearance and that she feels important. The fact that we frame her shows that she feels protected by us, that we watch over her.

The fact that I am the largest figure in the picture is not all that surprising since I am the biggest personality (and, let's face it, the biggest person) in our household. It is not surprising that my hand is on my hip either as this seems to have become a stance of choice for me.

The surprising part of this picture is that black swirly part in the middle of my body.

Do you know what it is?

Can you guess?

Here's your clue: Z describes the center of your body as your bottom. Front and back, it's the bottom.

Since you all know that we shower together (and that I don't shave regularly), then you have probably guessed that that is my bottom. When asked why I am naked in this picture, she replied, "You're not naked, you're wearing a dress...and showing your bottom."

My father used to tell me that I was always showing my ass, I guess I never realized that my kid would see it too.


  1. LOL! I love it!

  2. Ha ha! Awesome!

    My eledest daughter learned how to write a couple words. She wanted to make a card for daddy while at work. "Hero" well she forgot the "r" so now I jokingly call my husband the biggest "hoe" I know. Kids are so funny LOL.

    Found you through my mommy blogger.

  7. BAHHHHAAAAA!!!! I just saw this link over on the comment you posted on Brenna's page -- please frame this and hang on your living room wall. Please. Please?

  8. Ha ha, the one she brought home from school had my boobies and my black swirly middle - apparently, I just walk around flashing people.
