the letter U for the craft barn


Ever heard of Mamma Mu?  The ones who do follow this blog ( even though I removed the follow button a couple of years ago...) will remember this image - I've used different ones but always from the same author.
Mamma Mu is "just" a cow, but she still wants to try other things that "normal" cows don"t do. This time she wants to go on the swings. I love the expression on her face - how does it work, why don't I move...? Maybe I like it so much because I work with children and this expression is quit familiar now... and THEN the big relief and the excitement when they find out that YES they can do it - it works!!!

The images are from Sven Nordquist and the story from Jujja and Tomas Wieslander.

My children always loved these stories when they were "small" and me, the mother, is still stuck...

I remember a t-shirt my son wore some years ago - "you laugh at me beacause I'm different, I laugh at you because you are all the same..." At the time , I thought he was brave to wear a text like that....

Anyway, what I want to say here is, that I think it is good when we dare to be different and Mamma Mu difinitely dares to... Look at her on those swings , the udder hanging there .... and here we are - the lettter U for the craft barn alpha challenge letter U.

Mamma Mu (the udder) is my entry.

Hope you like it - I love her style!

  3. Love EVERYTHING about this blog post. My initial reaction of a giggle and a smirk. And the sentiment which reminds me of Blue Cow a UK kiddies TV programme where a cow chose to be different and get on the bus for adventures. I can hear it now a man trying to speak in a high voice to the animation. Here's a link. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/story-makers/stories/story-makers-bluecowinplayground/
    Off to find out about your cow now - love the pages by the way, quite taken away with it all - ROFL - BJ (Swan Upping seems quite boring now LOL)
