On the old site, I had a little tradition of occasionally showing off embarrassing baby pictures of the kids (here’s Alaric, Connlann, and Skatje, for instance). Today is Mother’s Day, and it would be cool to show off old pictures of Mom, but wouldn’t you know it — mothers are much too clever for that. She just sent me a collection of baby pictures of Little PZ, so I’ll turn the magic time-machine on myself, instead.
This is pure treacle, self-obsession, vanity, and nostalgia. Don’t look below the fold.
You know, though, the little guy in all those pictures was completely dependent on his mother, and wouldn’t have been here without her. She was right there, outside the field of view of the camera, not really visible to you, maybe, but always on my mind.
I guess this is about Mom, after all. Thanks for having me, thanks for taking care of me, thanks for putting up with me, thanks for caring, thanks for everything.
