“a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, for 2020”
Jade: Best big sister.
Roux: On the verge of six.
Emet managed to escape the lens this week, sadly, as we were like ships in the night. Sharing space but only briefly, each moving in a different direction. I’ve come to learn that’s how it is, as I remember it being exactly that way when I was his age. Honestly, it is hard for me to fathom that I actually have a son who will celebrate his seventeenth birthday this summer. He is sill my Emet, my golden firstborn baby who made me a mama and continues to teach me more about myself than often I am prepared to learn. I am so darn proud of that kid of mine, even if I don’t have all the photos to show it.
Otherwise, it was a good and busy week. The littlest one and I made a renegade road trip to Las Vegas, just the two of us. Up and on the road before the sun, it was such a pleasant drive. I am utterly smitten with the Mojave Desert (my companion, too!) and I just can’t help myself. Super looking forward to a four-day-work-week, which are the very best kind, in my humble opinion.
