On Green Things and other Deep Subjects
I love my very, VERY weird kids.
He has a green mouth. It’s usually blue. Today it’s green.
I don’t ask him why his mouth is different colours any more.
I just accept the fact that my kids are a little bit…different looking sometimes.
This makes me smile. And feel very proud of my
weird artistic children.
If more people in the world had green mouths then…I guess there would be more green in the world.
This concludes my deep thoughts for the day.
It was good to get away from the schoolwork for a few minutes.

Mom always told ME to eat my greens! :-p

Maybe your kids are trend setters. I can recall getting one ear pierced and my family thought I was becoming a pirate or something! Now with tattoos and multiple piercings…what can be next…perhaps selective amputations? At least having color around one’s mouth is noninvasive. Do your kids make any other art?

I hear ya. I was brought up in a family that looks down on makeup for women and jewelry, etc. (Naturally, I’m the black sheep- always pushing the envelope and breaking rules, etc.) I encourage my kids to express themselves completely. I hold fast to my traditional morals, beliefs, etc. and have taught my kids to cherish these things of the heart- but also, to be able to say and do the things that give them the freedom they need as individuals. Individuality is so important to me. Several of my kids are artists and especially my oldest daughter- she’s amaaazing. She sports a tat, has had a few piercings, (has had an array of hair colours including green and pink) and is all about self-expression and is a multi-medium artist. I don’t like body piercings much (and a list of other things) but my kids know they have my blessing (not to be confused with “approval”) on any things they want to do- I’ll back ’em up. Always. :0)
