Smile at me! by micklyn


Available to buy on…

One of the best pieces of parenting advice I ever got was to smile at my children. There is nothing like a smiling mama to change the mood of the whole household. Try it, it’s amazing.

But the other day I was thinking that sometimes I need a visible reminder… I get so caught up in the daily chores and cares and forget to smile. I considered writing it on their foreheads with permanent marker, but I thought maybe tees would be more fun. : ) Gonna have to order 10 of these. (And maybe a sticker for my bathroom mirror so I remember to smile at myself, too.)

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.

    Sometimes it is HARD to smile! Excellent advice dear micklyn. Reilly looks good below with his sister…I can see that he’s plotting something in his eyes. A charming and precious tee shirt design. Have a Great Day!
