A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2013
Charlie: Oh my boy! This week you have been so poorly with a virus, yet determined to be in the sunshine and help me plant seeds. I love how he loves life and engross himself wholeheartedly in everything he does. It is a gift and I wish he never changes.
Rufus: Such a little faker! Couldn’t be at school whilst Charlie was home so he cried til he was sick. His teacher called me to collect him. Back home he became BatMan and thoroughly loved having a day off.
I am not sure if Rufus felt jealous that Charlie was at home or if he I felt lonely being at school without him there. Although they are in different buildings and don’t see each other on a daily basis during school hours – the thought that his brother wasn’t there with him was all too much.
