|A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2013|
A & T: A vision of the future
This is the first time I've posted one photograph of both kids, but it's fitting as they've been playing together more and more. The age gap is 3 years and 5 days, and sometimes it just doesn't work; there's squabbling and snatching and far too much shouting. (I hope this will change as they get older, and I'm hoping 4 and 7 makes for better play than 3 and 6 (roll on next year) but I could be wrong. It's a habitual phrase in this house: 'this time next year, things will be different'.)
But other times it works. Once they've broken that boredom barrier, they play together, finding games out of thin air and enjoying their kinship.
The school holidays have been long, and the boys have been together all day, every day. This isn't the norm, and I wonder how they'll fare when they go back to school in a week or so. They will miss each other terribly, I think. That's so like kids, isn't it? Missing and loving each other like crazy one minute, bashing each other over the head the next. The two things run in parallel.
