How fun would it be to take a black and white photo of your little one and have them stencil, paint, print their favorite motifs atop it? The work of the kids and adults who visited (above) looked awesome.
Since my little one is just four months and won’t be able to craft for some time, I decided to do a sketch (above) instead. If you’re wondering why I chose to have a beard motif, it’s to commemorate his current phobia: beards! We discovered this at his recent pediatrician’s appointment when he started hooting and crying (real tears) as soon as the doctor appeared. To the delight of the rest of his patients, our pediatrician has a full, silvery beard and is the spitting image of Santa Claus. But for my little one, he is the bogey monster. One day we’ll be laughing about this, so I thought I’d create a beard motif that’s supposed to look like a no-smoking/no-beard symbol.
