A lover and a fighter January 14, 2011 in "art and motherhood", "kids and art" The Boy broke a board with an axe kick today, during his test to earn a high yellow belt in tae kwon do. Which thrills me, because he's working hard and learning how to defend himself. But the thing that really makes me proud? He wants me to help him paint the board pieces. See? A lover (of art) and a fighter.
