DAY 95: Mothering

Sunday April 5th 003, originally uploaded by Kikigill.

I love this picture. I love it because Jeff doesn't come back East from his Naperville home very often. And I love it because it's a moment between mother and son that is so dear. It doesn't matter that Jeff is over fifty and his mother over eighty, when she offers him a bite of her brownie, he cannot resist. She cannot resist biting along with him in the great tradition and habit of mothers everywhere while feeding their children. Mouths mime mouth opening, spoon licking, and biting in an involuntary response. So sweet to see it never stops.

That is incredibly sweet, made even more touching by your commentary.
