Inside my mittens I’ve got…

Inside my mittens I’ve got…

I know the drill. We were reading Toes, Ears, and NoseLately, Z loves to label her ‘pao’ aka feet, haat aka hands, mou aka mouth, and naak aka nose. I’ve been trying my best to teach her some Urdu so I’m happy she’s picking up. When we get to the page that says, “Inside my mittens I’ve got…” Z usually says her hands (haat) and holds them out jubilantly. This time, she matter-of-factly replied “High-Pie” aka “High-Five”. I couldn’t help thinking that was pretty cool. We had been practicing High-Fives, something Z, and I think every kid loves. You’re right Z, we don’t just have hands, we have high-fives! We have hands that should be used for high-fives. When was the last time you gave a high-five? We need to praise and appreciate more. So Inside my mittens I’ve got…high-fives!


About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012), an an infant (August 2017) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
