it seems ironic, given that I am a photographer who’s built a brand on social media, that I can’t (yet) post a pic of my guy’s handsome face. ironic and somehow perfect. “what’s the dumbest thing people have said to me?” my therapist asked me. I spent the better part of our time together in response. and he encouraged me to use my wit to come up with some funny one liners to disarm people. and a part of me thinks “it isn’t my job to make (ignorant) people more comfortable,” and a part of me knows that to not know you don’t know is a dangerous place to dwell and people need all the help (education) they can get. there’s so much I know I still don’t know about parenting and life. and I’m grateful to the people who lovingly teach me even what I don’t know, that I don’t know.
and even still, with all that appears wrong in this world, I don’t worry about this guy. he’s strong and sweet and silly and so damn smart - traits he inherited from his birth mother who deserves sainthood as far as I’m concerned...and traits I hope he’s learning in the time we get to share with him. #cuteear #shotonfilm
