A Portrait Of My
Mucho apologies for the dearth of postings of late, but this job thing is something else! There are so many things I want to post on, but it's so hectic at the moment that I'm finding it very difficult to sort through everything.
As a little something to mollify those who still faithfully read my (not very) humble blog, I have finally decided to post a picture of Magilla.
As I don't have a copy of photoshop, and even if I did, I've no skill at applying hair to pictures, you'll just have to imagine that she has long brown hair.
On a slightly less serious note, last week I collected my offspring from daycare only to be told that she had punched Jay in the nose and there was blood everywhere.
Apparently Magilla was playing at Atomic Betty, which is one of her favourite cartoon characters, and Jay was the robot. OF course, I've never seen Atomic Betty beat the crap out of any robots, but Magilla also has a big thing for Jackie and loves to do the kungfu dragon stances and punching and so forth.
I have tried to teach her to make a proper fist, and I know that some of it sank in when she explained to me that you have to hit with a certain part of your hand or you'll hurt yourself.
Hehe. She's also now learned that you can hurt other people, too.
For now, though, she is not to play Atomic Betty vs the Robot, and next year when she hits 5 she'll definitely be taking up martial arts.
That way, she can punch and kick and jump and shout "HAH!" to her heart's delight and not inflict toooooo much damage.
