Being my son's parent is as important as being his friend.

Picture of the Day
This is a picture that was taken before my son and I attended the Mothers and Sons ball at La Palais Royale (www.palaisroyale.org/) last year in March. We went to Portrait Innovations (http://www.portraitinnovations.com/) where I scheduled a photo-shoot for the two of us. Taking family pictures together and taking vacations are two things that I make sure to do with my son each year. When we went to the ball, we both thought that it was kind of cheesy and thought that it could have been put together better, but because the two of us have learned how to have fun just being together we ended up having a great time. I find that it’s the times when my son and I are just hanging out that he is able to open up to me about certain things. My son has come to see me as not only his mom, but his friend also. We love to do most of the same things and are continually looking for new things to do. I believe that its these things that keep us close and allow us to bond and just enjoy each other, which I believe is important between parents and kids. Doing activities together allows my son and me to continue to learn about each other and to learn new things together. When looking at this picture, I can clearly see what one saying means by saying “pictures are worth more than a thousand words” (author unknown) because I can think of a thousand good thoughts about my son and I, but the thought that stands out the loudest is: best friends forever!
