A Theta Mom Moment

In keeping with the theme of what makes us all Theta Moms , I thought it would be fun to share this photo with you.

Only a Theta Mom (The True, Authentic Mom) would hand over her $20 make-up brush when her 3 1/2 year old misplaced her paintbrush!



Can't wait to see what color I get next time I line my eyes with it!

If you capture a Theta Mom moment, why not do a post and share it with us.  Don't have a camera handy? Leave a comment and tell us about it. And don't forget to check out all the posts on what makes each of us a Theta Mom and be sure to link up with Heather, grab a tag and do a Theta Mom post yourself!

You are so THETA Mom! And it was worth it, I'm guessing.

Using your $20 makeup brush to let your daugter paint Dora the Explorer is really helping me to understand the Theta mom concept. :)
Hope I can join you all soon. Some days, I plan to write one thing and another thing comes out.

Girl, one word - Q-tips. But I do have to admire your sacrifice. Anything to make sure Dora turns into a masterpiece - ready to display on the fridge.

Natalie said...

Ah yes! I have been known to lose the odd blush brush or pastry brush over the years. No man or woman should stand in the way of creative genius in the making!
What a lovely post, it made me smile thank you, Deb. :D

Buckeroomama said...

I'm not sure if I would be that unselfish... You rock!

Thanks everyone for stopping by and for checking out my Theta Mom Moment. Loved reading your comments and the advice was good too. Q-Tips Simone? I never thought of it although I may need them now to line my eyes!

Frugal Vicki said...

Okay, well, I only have like a dollar brush from somewhere or other....but the point TOTALLY rocks. You ARE a theta Mom!

Martha in PA said...

That's funny! I never knew where my make up brushes were when Tara was younger. She was always using them for something. She was always going through the bathroom cabinets or my dresser drawers finding "treasures".

Jacki said...

Is that Smashbox?!?! *cries*

Just kidding :) She is lucky to have a mother as selfless and giving as you! Nice painting too, I'm so impressed at how well she stays inside the lines!

yonca said...

I gave my make up brus to my son for painting too. He used to love painting(still loves it) and his brush was lost. But I couldn't use it again:)
Deb, I,m truly in love with your writings.
Have a beautiful day!

suzicate said...
