This is a revamp of a photo that Bruce took of Sebi and I when he was three. We had this absolute bond, partly the result of my carrying him in a sling for the first 12 months of his life.
I loved having him so close to me, and he was always happiest tucked up next to my heart.
The bond is still there, although it shows in different ways....one thing that hasn't changed (yet) is the nightly cuddles. The thumb sucking has stopped, and it's more of a TV watching experience than a spiritual one, but the bond is as strong as ever. A mother knows.
