Bushy Eyebrows

At 10.30pm yesterday, I was trying to unwind, doing a little sketching of this girl. The children come into my bedroom to see what I'm up to, bouncing up and down on the bed oblivious to the fact that it makes it a little more difficult to sketch when the paper has momentum. "Her eyes look funny", "It's not a her, it's a boy - look at the eybrows", "are you going to leave her lips like that?". Hmmmm, I patiently finished the drawing and sent them packing off to bed. Oh the joys.

Tonight, my muscles ache. After over a week of not carting a baby around for most of the day, my muscles went into meltdown. It was lovely to be with them today - my repertoire of songs and fingerplays included: "We wash our dirty hands", "1 2 3 4 5 once I caught a fish alive", "Here is the beehive", "Twinkle Twinkle little star", "Baa baa black sheep" and "Galumph went the little green frog" to mention a few. I love my babies.

It must be great to be able to cuddle with a baby and then he/she goes home! Maybe your sketched lady is a naturalist - she doesn't pluck her eyebrows or shave!

I had two of my three grandgirls with me this weekend. It was a joy. We mostly sang the Barney song: I love you, you love me, we're a happy family,.....

It was a joy, but they gave me pink eye. UGH!

Love your drawings, eyebrows and all, Brenda,

I think your sketch is lovely and I like the way the hair falls to the front. Happy New Year!
