Yesterday I published a pictured that my 4 year old drew of me.
I won’t lie to you, it wasn’t the most flattering of portraits.
I didn’t have any arms for a start. And she decided that I was roughly the shape of a balloon.
But those things aside, it was really nice to be presented with a lovingly drawn picture and told: “this is you mummy”.
I come in for a lot of flack from some comments over my portrait. One of the worst offenders, you won’t be surprised to hear, was Single Parent Dad.
So I set him down a challenge to have his son Max draw a picture of him and see what that produced.
But it seems Single Parent Dad has come over all vain since having a photo session with his son and posting a new profile picture everywhere anyone will look. Tut. He failed miserably.
Anyway (for there is a point to all this) I thought I would create a whole new meme.
One that’s really easy and (I hope) you’ll all enjoy.
Ask your child – their age doesn’t matter – to draw a picture of you.
Post it on your blog.
Let’s call it the Picture Perfect Meme
Err, that’s it.
Pass it on to your friends/enemies if you want to.
(If like me you don’t have a fancy pants scanner, take a photo of it and post it that way!)
So to kick this off I am passing the baton on to 10 bloggers: Some old friends, some new, some I just want to have a good laugh at the results when they come out:
Oh, and I lied, one more: Blogger Dad because he is an artist and never posts new pictures of himself, so maybe his son can do him justice . . .
