I'm obviously not a little girl, but every kid loves his parents, and we always remember the nice moments we had, growing up with our mother and father. They are our guardians, our protectors, and providers. We learn to speak from them, we learn the facts of life and nature, and we have all of our meal with them. Our parents can't always be with us, but we can always remember what they did for us. Here is a list that shows why.
All kids have a period when they are growing up when they have nightmares or other problems going to sleep. Our fathers are the first figure to come to us, and protect us during our sleep. Even telling a short bedtime story is enough sometimes - I know this helped me when my father used to do it.
Perhaps your father wasn't alone in helping you dress or comb your hair for the first time - maybe your mother did it and your father helped out. No matter what, he was there, and he was very proud of your first transition from baby to girl.
I'm sure you can remember the first time your father carried you on his shoulders. You felt like you were on top of the world. You felt like you were over 50 feet tall, and anything was possible at that moment. Bonus points if this happened at a concert.
Everyone can remember the countless occasion when we've slept in our parent's arms. Perhaps we were watching a movie and fell asleep, or maybe we got tired of having a walk in the park. It is a magical moment when you remember it.
Every night we felt cold, or scared (I was really scared by lightning and darkness), our father was the main source of warmth and protection. No matter how afraid you were, your father was always there for you, comforting you.
You might remember some days when your father was very busy, and come home late from work. That didn't matter one bit - he would always walk up to you, give you a hug, and even read you a bedtime story. He was there for you.
Who can forget playing hide and seek with your father, or him playing with your silly toys and dolls? My father used to take me to airfields and explain what the various airplanes models were, and I loved asking questions about the various laws of physics, needed to make an airplane fly. He is a great dad.
The photo above shows how some children, even when they grow up and become adolescents, still would want to spend their whole lives with their parents. If they could fit in their father's luggage, they would do so, just to be together.
Our fathers taught us a lot of things. It depends on the gender that you learned, but many boys play their first game of chess with their fathers. Many teenagers may also have their first glass of beer with their fathers.
You might have noticed the text "Soosh" in some of the corners on all the photos throughout this article. Soosh is the last name of Snezhana Soosh, the Ukrainian girl who is the author of these photos. She became a world-renown artist after releasing them.
Soosh believes that the relationship a girl can have with their father can be an amazing thing. That's what motivated her to create these 15 amazing portraits, all drawn by hand. She gave an interview for the Huffington Post to explain some of the photos.
The painter of these photos did not have a good relationship with her father - he was always cold and distant. Psychologically speaking, this is very easy to understand, as to how her weak father-daughter relationship gave her the motive to paint these pictures.
Soosh told the Huffington Post: I always wanted to have a tender and loving relationship with my own father, but he didn't know how to show his love so most of the time was distant and cold." Luckily, she can now remedy this, by improving the relationship with her son.
Her son's name is Frol, and he means the world to her. Soosh also told reporters He is the first one to see my illustrations and give his opinion on them." She also said that she wants the photos to help her son to grow up into a good man.
Here is a photo of the woman I'm writing about, Snezhana Soosh herself. One of her main hopes is for her photos to reach thousands of other parents around the world, and make them be even better, and more dedicated to the raising of their children.
They may be beautiful, rich and famous, but celebrities are human too, and that means they're just as prone to getting sick as the rest of us. And just like us, some celebs even live with chronic conditions that can take a toll on their day-to-day lives. But eczema – also referred to as dermatitis – is a common dry skin condition. Symptoms include dry, itchy, red and scaly skin. In more extreme cases, the skin can crust and bleed. According to the National Eczema Association, 1 in 10 individuals will develop eczema in their lifetime. And given these statistics, it’s hardly a surprise there are a few celebrities out there who have eczema too.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, 37, suffered from eczema in her teens. Kate was bullied heavily whilst attending Downe House girls’ boarding school, according to the Duchess’s friend Jessica Hay. According Hay, Middleton’s bullies made fun of her eczema. ‘It didn’t help that she was so tall and self-conscious about her eczema,’ Hay told CelebNow. Studies have shown children with moderate and extreme atopic dermatitis are more likely to suffer from conditions like anxiety and low self-esteem, which has a knock-on effect on their school work and ability to make friends.
Although Brad Pitt, 55, has not spoken about the issue himself, his co-star Cate Blanchett disclosed that Pitt was suffering from eczema during filming of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. In an interview with Scotland’s Daily Record, the actress said, ‘We went through three weeks of make-up tests and he was covered in eczema from it all.’ Blanchett sweetly loaned Pitt her skin cream to deal with the dermatitis, that had developed due to the use of prosthetic makeup worn during filming. Prosthetic make-up isn’t the hugest concern for us non-Hollywood folk, nevertheless, what is a concern, is how makeup can trigger eczema flair up. Unless makeup brushes are constantly washed (let’s be real, they’re not), they become a breeding ground for bacteria. This can lead to clogged pores and irritated sensitive skin.
Adele, 31, stated that her eczema flared up when she became a new mom. During a press conference in 2013 after her Golden Globe win for Best Original Song for the Bond film Sykfall, the singer said: ‘I am exhausted. That’s how [motherhood] changed me. I have eczema from boiling bottles.’ Research carried out by the BMJ (formerly known as the British Medical Journal) has revealed that contact dermatitis has the potential to have ‘detrimental’ impact and in the worst case scenarios can even threaten some sufferers ability to work.
