A Face Only a Son Could Love

Rafa drew a picture of me a couple of days ago. I was taken aback when I saw it, and then a bit dismayed. Do I really look that bad these days?

The thing is, this simple drawing is amazingly accurate. My new glasses are square-ish, and at least I thought, fashionably bold. Rafa has chosen to give them special emphasis in his rendering of me.

My mouth is in fact a bit wide, and my eyebrows are quite dark. I always felt a special affinity with Brooke Shields, and Rafa seems to have looked into my mind and understood that about me.

And most days I do push my bangs off my forehead and over to the side, usually by about 10 minutes after I have done my hair in the morning. So, you see, he is easily able to portray personal habits as well.

It's a bit different from looking like Daphne, but I guess the lesson here is about beauty being on the inside. Although he thinks I look like this, he loves me even so.

Kids are so awesome. I don't think you look anything like that. My poor hubby was always drawn sleeping with all the rest of the family standing around him smiling. He got a really big complex about it, so you should congratulate yourself on having such a good attitude. LOL!
