A shout out to my mother


My mother just re-connected her internet.
I can feel her eyes on me right now, as I type these words.

I better be nice.
I'm scared LOL!


  1. Hehe...this is funny...and very cute.


  2. What a beautiful drawing.

    Luckily my mother has not yet figured out how to get onto the net :)

  3. I know just what you mean. I never know when my mother is reading because she refuses to comment.

  4. Yes...you'd better behave yourself. :) Luckily, I've never told my mom that I even have a blog...Not sure what that says about our relationship.


  5. Hele - I would love to take credit for this as a drawing, but it's actually part of a photo - I let Photoshop turn it into a drawing because I figured my mother would not like me if I just posted as is. LOL!

    Jaime, Relyn, Eilandkind & Celeste - It's kinda scary! LOL! But she really loves my blog & even her friends read it. Come to think of it, THAT'S really scary!


  6. Sigh.... mothers are such a source of joy and anguish, but I can't help worrying about the day she won't be around for me anymore.


come. sit under the emma tree & let's talk. i have cookies . . .
