I said to my mom, let’s go swimming. She laughed at me and said that she can’t swim. And also pointed something out.
First, yes my mom can’t swim, but I wasn’t asking her to really swim, just play around in the water. Second, and I guess this is the main issue, she pointed out her breast. One of her breasts was removed due to breast cancer.
Stupid me that I just didn’t think about it (we often do things like this unintentionally). Of course for my mom this simple activity can be a little bit complicated and perhaps intimidating. I should have been more thoughtful. Long story short, she decided to sit on the beanbag by the pool to accompany us swimming. I think she had fun.
I think in 2019 I’ll try to travel/hang out more with her. How about you, any plans with your mom or dad?
