All about Carmen

I am one of the most fortunate women I know. Why, you may ask? Because I have an amazing daughter who loves me, that's why! First, she's beautiful, even if she doesn't know it! Second, she is smart as a whip. (After all, how many of you have a fifteen year old that can tell you why boys are born with nipples?) Third, she is so much fun! (and she calls me Mommy sometimes and makes my heart melt!) Fourth, her talent knows no bounds!

One of her favorite artists online created a character named Sabbath. Above is one of Carmen's drawings of him. As you can see, he is a rag doll made human. As a gift for this artist, Carmen has made a doll. Isn't he fabulous? He still needs his blue jeans, but otherwise he is done. She did an awesome job. How do you like his cool earrings? She is a perfectionist! She must have done and re-done those earrings for two hours! It was a joy to share with her my knowledge and watch her apply it to her own project.

Also, her first quarter report card came this weekend. Our school district does things a little differently than when I was in school. She only has four periods a day, but they're each an hour and a half long. Also, the kids get two grades in each class. One for citizenship and one for academics. Carmen's report card looked like this: A,A,A+,A,A,B,A,B !!!! She so rocks! Her art teacher even called me a couple of weeks ago to tell me that a) she's wonderful and b)her art is wonderful. And I said, I know, isn't she amazing?

Now, lest you think I am bragging, I will say, No Way! She is who she is. She sprang from the womb like this! All I've ever done is sat back and watched in awe!
(Love you, Carmelita!)
