so over the last few days i have gone back to doing color pencil sketches...which seems to come quite a bit easier to me than painting! i am hoping that will all change once I journey to this come October!!
i wanted to post the sketch i did of what i seem to experience on a daily basis as a parent to a near 15 year old girl. i am CERTAIN many of you other parents can completely relate to this!! and to you parents whose children have not hit pre-teen/teenage years...just get ready!!! : ) It's acomin!!! so with that being said and you viewing my sketch...i need to ask a question and am hopeful to get some answers...
when i get "the roll of the eyes" at comments / requests i make...i tend to get angry and irritated and cop an attitude myself. words such as "you roll your eyes like that at me one more time...and you'll be sorry" or if i am in a really bad mood..."okay, hand over your cell phone...you know how we feel about the disrespect of the rolling eyes"!!
so my question or questions are these: is that too harsh? should i just ignore it? what do you guys do?? is this just a phase she is going through??
i do have to say that she did laugh when i showed her the latest sketch i did of her! i am trying to make light of it but i would be lying if i said it wasn't one of those "thorns in my side"!! i think i'm gonna have to ask my mom if i did it to her a lot..it simply could be karma!
