Self Portrait Challenge -- Self-Portrait As My Mother
Okay, so it's a bit of a cop-out to use Ruby for SPC, but I really don't have the creative energy to play dress-up this month. So here is a portrait of Ruby dressed up as me. Get it? The little princess has become obsessed with prancing around in my shoes. I have to hide all shoes from her (hers, mine and Aaron's) otherwise she cries and whines until I put them on her feet. I'm constantly afraid that she'll do a head-dive into a sharp corner as she stomps around in my mary-janes, but I can't deny her the pleasure of dress-up. Note that she's also got one of my old purses, which she long ago claimed as her own. She likes to carry around an old set of keys.
And, here's a gratuitous shot of the growing girl's face, along with Mommy. I can't believe how fast her little brain is growing or how true all of those clichees about how quick they change are. Sigh.
p.s. Both photos are blurry because this kid never (NEVER!) sits still. Never.
