    sandwich bag doodle art
    Every morning, I doodle on the girls sandwich bags. I’ve done this since the beginning of the school year, and the girls still giggle when they open up their lunches to see their sandwich bags all doodled up just for them.

    This morning, Catybug was having issues. Hair issues. In trying to save time in the shower, she opted out of conditioning her hair today, and paid dearly in front of the mirror with the hairbrush and comb. Nothing was going to get those knots out, and she was not a happy girl. She’s determined, and would have ripped every strand in her little head right out if it meant she’d never have another knot, so I had to intercede with a post-shower leave-in conditioner application.

    Girls. And their hair.

    So, when I started making lunches, I doodle the most prominent thing that comes to mind when I think about each of them. Today, it was knots. I started drawing the knot, and had no idea what was going to come next, but for some reason “Snot Nose” came to mind, and I ran with it, creating “Knot Nose”.

    There you have it, the story behind the doodle.

    (She rolled her eyes at me, and huffed a little. Then she thought it was a little funny, and then I was in the clear. Phew.)

    Oh, how I LOATHE the hair. #5 is the worst – curly, thick and it’s like a rat’s nest every morning. I must go through a gallon of conditioner in 3 weeks. :lol:
