Saddest self-portrait ever.



KayTar drew that today. She said, "That's me."

I pointed at the lines at the bottom of her eyes and said, "What are those?"

"Tears." she said, "I'm crying because I don't feel good."

Did you hear that sound? Yes, it was the sound of my heart breaking.

My poor sweet girl, creating her own little preschool pain scale.



It isn't an exact match, but I suspect that it might be a Number 10 putting on its very bravest face.

My heart is breaking for her and for you! That really is the saddest thing I've seen. She is so strong and has been through so much for such a young kid. You too, my friend, you too. Hugs.

Oh, the poor sweetie pie. I hope that tomorrow brings a happier face, too.

On the bright side, I think she has fantastic fine motor skills. That's a pretty good drawing for her age.

On the bright side, at least she's telling you how she feels... and pretty accurately little drawer, too!

She's going to start feeling better... she is! So hang in there.

Hugs.

Oh! I hope she feels better soon. And if she can draw like that when she feels so poorly, the picture when she's better will be awesome!

Poor little one. I like Slouchy's suggestion. There will be progress.

That IS the saddest self portrait EVER. :( Poor baby girl. However, I think she is a fantastic artist. And I like that she still drew a smile. That's KayTar, though, huh?

Bon said...

What a sweet, sweet little girl who is only temporarily a 10. Wait a minute. Did that come out right?

Mimi said...

Oh! Kyla, this is killing me. Your poor little girl ... it does look like a 10 with a brave face, doesn't it?

Yes, that did just break my heart. Hugs to your sweet girl!
