“But what’s her story?”
I played with this collage today, but it is not going anywhere. At one point she wore a top hat. At one point she was purple. I printed her out and embroidered a bit but then tossed the embroidered girl. I realized I cannot figure out what to do next because I don’t know my girl’s story. Originally she was home after a party thrown in her honor, but I just don’t know…
What do you think her story is? Let me know in your comments.
Besides playing with my charming but storyless girl today, I also played with my very real and wonderful eleven-month-old girl. But when bedtime came, she was struggling to fall asleep. I went into her room to comfort her. We sat in the rocker and she reached to the side table next to the chair. She was reaching for Lambie, a little stuffed lamb that usually resides in her crib, but at this moment was perched on the table. I gave her Lambie and she clutched it to her chest and fell asleep on me right away. She has a favorite stuffed animal! She has never done something like that before. I, of course, wept a bit because I was so overcome with amorphous mommy-emotion.
I then decided to try and sketch out Lambie with my new fine point pens (on a discarded envelope – Happy Earth Day). My Lambie drawing is very cutesy for my taste, but that is what I drew. What will I do with you Lambie drawing? What will I do?
