Cassatt’s Mother and Child

No matter how many times they make a pile of all their toys, how many times they fuss about the socks I make them wear, how many times they need to be returned to their seat during dinner time, how many times they lock the cat into the kitchen cupboard, how many times I find myself shouting at them to be quiet, how many times they quit a game halfway through, how many times they hide behind my bed when I say it’s time to brush teeth… it’s really no matter when they cuddle in my lap just because I’m mom.

Let’s hope I never forget how vulnerable we all are, and how we need to care and be cared for.
