I wonder if Mom's seen what I did to the bathroom yet? by micklyn

I wonder if Mom's seen what I did to the bathroom yet? by 

Reilly (2 and a half) is at that wonderful age where, if you leave him alone for half a minute, he will empty the shampoo bottle out in your bed, or you will find him in the kitchen with the sugar bowl, sugar-encrusted hands and face, and sugar all around him on the floor. There is never a dull moment and he is SO cute that you can’t be mad at him for long.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    So natural, so beautiful, so playful – it’s a pity we lose that freedom as we get older. Great portrait.

  • Thanks, Rhoufi! yes, children have a wonderful freedom about them.

    Yay, Reilly! I love to make bubble mix from shampoo… a big hit with the kids, not so good with the parents (who I’m usually visiting :-) Beautiful portrait, Micklyn… he’s becoming quite the stunner, eh?

  • Thanks, Sandy! I’d like to try that shampoo bubble mix sometime… the other thing Reilly is really good at is tipping all his bubble mix on the floor after only blowing a dozen bubbles and then crying because it’s all gone!
