One of the many million reasons why I love having a little four-year-old around, is discovering her drawings scattered all over the house. Yes, I grumble as I bend over and wonder how much a little one could accumulate so much mess in the little hours she spends getting read for school in the morning. And then I look closely at what I’ve just picked up, and my heart fills with so much love, I could burst.
Here’s our family portrait, she drew a similar one on her board and as I type this I can see it in the corner of my eye and it makes me smile and really happy – the purest kind, not the superficial kind.
And then here’s one she did of her and her friends:
She also loves to scribble …
And here’s my favourite, some of you may have noticed this drawing on my IG account.
“It’s you mummy!” She said offering her drawing up to me.
Do you notice, I have heart-shaped pupils?
To her, I’m the most beautiful woman in the world.
And I look at this drawing and you know what, I really am the most beautiful woman in the world, even though most days I really feel like crap and probably look like a bag-lady 😉
What are your small joys?
Does your little one like drawing too?
