Most parents write diaries or take photos to capture the tender moments of their child's growth. But one mother has drawn a picture of her 2- year-old son almost every day of his life.
Angie Stevens began doodling pictures of her son Gruff shortly after he was born and now she has drawn more than 700 pictures of him and his two older sisters, Millie, 9 and Evie, 4.
The 38-year-old spends between around 20 minutes each evening sketching a new picture of her three children to document their days andposts them on her blog, ‘Doodlemum.’
The family’s cat Arnie, rescue dog Bonnie, four chickens and Gizmo the cockerel appear in the sketches too. “It is a lovely record for the children to look back on and far better than photos as the pictures capture my emotions too,” said Angie, who lives in Wales.
“Most sketches are humorous, but sometimes it’s a way for me to deal with things happening in our lives, such as being bullied or getting their own rooms.”
