Mother's day portrait
My son did his annual mother's day portrait of me last evening before we rushed him to doctors and found out he IS sick. Actually he is suffering from a case of mono. It's devastating to his hopes to be a boxer this summer, and his idea of senior spring fun. I tried to console him as best I could. Which meant I couldn't say much at all. Nothing is right when your kid feels lousy and sick. Unfortunately we took the whole weekend before focusing seriously on his symptoms. I was distracted.
He makes me look a lot better in his portrait this year than usual. I feel pretty lousy. Not getting enough sleep. I am a horrid worry wart.
I guess son's can idealize their mothers.
