Fearless Frida

My sons and I have been crafting a story about our cat since summer break started. This morning we had a brainstorming session and they helped me come up with this character sketch. It’s actually kind of funny, because our real Frida is terrified of thunder and lightning (or as we call them, the “Boom-Booms”).

Yes, that’s a shark tooth necklace she’s wearing. (Donovan’s idea). I thought that was a nice detail. Thanks, D!

It so nice to have expert children around to help me with these things.

Wishing you a renewed sense of fearlessness,
