a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013
I couldn't help but give Jemma two photos this week. A little side by side of her blossoming dramatics.
Photo one ... "Mama, mama ... I'm crying. I'm so terribly sad I can hardly express myself!"
Photo two ... "Mama, do you see me? Are my pretend tears working?"
And Max, just piercing into my soul with his huge gray eyes saying, "Don't believe her Mama, she's just giving you a hard time. Oh, and while you're looking at me - why don't you pick me up, that's what I like best!"
These children. They keep me busy. Give me mountains of smiles. And stretch my patience farther than I ever thought they could be stretched. Character building. That's what children are. The most precious test of who I am and who I'll become.
