Picasso’s Mother and Child

I admire Picasso for the changes his style went through. He didn’t get in a rut. He lived a dynamic artistic life. In the same way, I think, mothers are forced to live dynamically. Change is always in the air because the children are always changing, and so must our mothering tactics. There are blue days, bright days, days when everything is crystal clear, days when the picture looks like it is falling apart, surreal days, and emotionally expressive days. Whatever stage you are at now, reflect on the big picture, the collection of days that you and your children will look back on, your life-work. Happy Mother’s Day.
