I am Honey Boo Boo’s Mom


Ben set out to draw a portrait of me this evening. I sat at the table as he studied my face intently, concentrating on every last detail. It’s always so much fun to see yourself through your children’s eyes and I couldn’t wait to see the finished masterpiece.

Finally, there it was.

There is no greater blow to a mother's self esteem than a portrait by her child.

The nose.

The chin.

The hair.

The neck.

The birthmark.

The cheeks.

The teeth.

I posted the picture on Facebook and was flooded with people pointing out the likeness to Honey Boo Boo’s mom.
They were right.

.It’s simply uncanny.

I mean, clearly, that’s who he was capturing.

I feel so much better now.

    OK, remember what I said on Facebook about art being subjective?

    Yeah… never mind. That is SO Honey Boo Boo’s mom.

    SO SO funny.

    My daughter is into realism. She draws ALL the blood vessels in my eyes. It’s a bloody map of central London…

      OMG, Lily does the same thing. She drew a picture for her teacher and there are red squiggles all over the eyes. And she wants me to frame it for the holidays!
