me and my mama
there are lots of pretty things in my mother's house and for some reason on this trip i feel compelled to take photos of them. maybe i'll do a post of just pictures of things i love in her house. outside the room i sleep in, which isn't really 'my' room since they moved to this house after i graduated highschool, there is a pastel illustration framed. i love it because it looks exactly like my mother and i when i was a wee thing and she was a new mom. i sometimes sit and just stare at it in amazement, it's as if the person who created it was looking at a photo of my mom and i as she went along. it's uncanny and even crazier that my mom found it somewhere. she swiped it up as soon as she saw it, also spooked by the similarities. here's a photo as proof, notice my mom's lovely afro like black hair same as the woman in the picture, and my chubby cheeks and hair all the same. i want this in my house one day.
