It’s been a while since I’ve sunk my teeth into a good old Meme, but after being tagged by Steph on her Diary of Family Life with Autism, I just couldn’t resist this one…

It’s the ‘This Is Me’ Meme – started by Tara from Sticky Fingers. You get your child to draw a picture of you, take a pic, then post it for the whole big, bad world to see!

Big Sis, 2.5, loves a good arts and crafts sesh. She hasn’t quite outgrown her habit of eating the crayons (which makes for some rather lovely rainbow-coloured number twos) so I sat her down with inedible coloured pencils, and set her to work.

So here, I am, in all my glory. I swear it’s like looking in a mirror:

Then Monkey Dad decided to get in on the portrait action with his interpretation of me…

 Cheeky bastard.

    The first picture looks like me after a sleepless night with a crying baby!
