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.

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.
