Extreme Makeover: Asian Edition
Today, Bri handed me a picture she had just colored of me, her sister, and herself. This isn't unusual, but I should mention that there is always a very clear difference in Bri's drawings between the way she draws herself, and the way she draws the rest of her family. There's no mistaking which person in the drawing is supposed to be Bri. Here's one of her "normal" drawings of us, as we would usually look:But the picture she drew for me today was different. Very different. We're all Chinese. I said, "Oh, that's neat. We all look alike in this picture! Do you ever kinda wish we all looked alike?"
She said, "Yeah. I knew you guys would rather be Chinese, instead of just... you know... plain. So I just decided to make you that way."
I guess this shows I'm either really succeeding or seriously failing at making her feel positive about the way she looks and about our differences- I'm not sure which! But it sure was funny the way she said it. She really emphasized the word plain! lol!!
So, here's our new and improved Chinese makeover (I think Bri looks exactly like a Chinese Charlie Brown!):
