A mother becomes a grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she’s so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do.
Peanut loves Curious George. One of her nicknames is monkey so I suppose it’s appropriate. So anyway, one day we were watching Curious George and I commented George was certainly getting into a lot of trouble and doing things he shouldn’t be doing. A great moment to drive home the merits of good behavior, right? But without missing a beat, her response was:
Yes, Nana, but the man in the yellow hat always forgives him when he’s bad.
Hmmmm. She must be paying close attention in Sunday School.
Entrepreneur and I took Peanut along with us for his Drive the Dream Day. We were preparing her for what was going to happen that day and I said we were going to grab a bite to eat after Papa was finished driving the fast car.
To which her reply was simply, “only one bite?”
A funny thing happened when working on this photo. Usually when working with textures, my blending mode of choice is PhotoShop’s Soft Light. But just for kicks, I chose Saturation and got a totally different look. Here’s the original.
With the texture saturation at 80%, I thought it took on a muted vintage look. And then, I topped it off with a duplicate layer at….yes, you guessed it….Soft Light.
I suppose old habits are hard to break.
