Two of a Kind

“The love for my kids is what gives me strength.”

October is my birth month and I am feeling a bit melancholy. I haven’t been with my two kids for the longest time. I don’t want to think much about it but the last time I’ve been out with my daughter was in May of 2020 because of the pandemic. The last time I have seen my son was in November of 2018… quite a long time ago since he migrated to London!

Ever since when they were young, their age difference of 3 and a half years didn’t bother them at all. They can just talk and talk for hours and when they’re together they just goof around all the time. They love the same music…both are into photography … they are both professionally in media arts and graphic design… They are really two of a kind!

    Sending huge hugs, it really isn’t easy is it being apart from family specially when you have two as fabulous as these two. Just loving your opening square – such fun, and so very very lovely.

    I’m with you. I derive my strength from my kids too. It’s been the hardest part of COVID for me – being separated from loved ones. We’ll get through this. Stay safe.

      Same here V.J., I can be alone at home or walking by myself … no problem with that but not seeing family is the hardest! Be safe my dear!

  5. It is difficult to be separated from family at this time! I haven’t seen my parents for 9 months.

      1. So true, now that I am a parent I understand that more! I want to keep them safe, so we FaceTime a lot.

    I have 2 as well, but with a 19 year age gap! They are nothing alike but I love them both dearly and wish this virus wasn’t turning our world upside down.

      Nope all photos are of my kids then and now! I don’t think they are interested to have children so I have already accepted that I may not have any apos.
