Tangerine Obession


Lately Z has been obsessed with tangerines. She’ll demand that she wants one, and when I open it a little, and let her do the rest, she’ll happily commence peeling, and then when done, run off to play, and leave the poor tangerine to dry out.

Needless to say, we’ve been eating a lot of tangerines lately so that they don’t go to waste.

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) 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!

  1. My middle child does the same thing. He wraps the tangerine up in a paper towel, leaves it on the counter and says he will be back to eat it soon. It still dries out. I throw it away and then he cries. !
