Those of you who have read my post Why I am Like Marrying a Man, may be wondering if there is a "softer" side of me. While I plan to detail my more girlie side (with a list of 20 things- hopefully 20), I figured in the meantime, I'd show you something that I do to show family members that I love them, namely Stick Figures. Because nothing says "I love you" quite like stick figures :-)
I draw stick figures of family members doing things like helping take out the trash (well, ok, that one's a well-weathered reminder depicting MB taking out the trash), or wishing my son luck in an upcoming juggling performance or to have a happy day at school. They usually put a smile on his face. MB is a an even better stick figure artist, so his figures often show much more "expression" than my figures, and those that contain "mild adult humor" are always good for a big belly laugh no matter how grumpy I am.
Call it Sticky Love.
