“A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2014.”
Lillia: This week you discovered the Minecraft PVP servers. You’ve spent a lot of your free time killing other kids Hunger Games-style, in the form of block people with block weapons. I struggle to accept this, but you don’t seem very bothered and enjoy the adrenaline rush. Someone has undoubtedly published a peer-reviewed journal article proclaiming the cognitive benefits of PVP games for kids, which will instantly put my mind at ease…I hope. This is actually a double portrait — you’re the rainbow colored character, too.
Zane: This week you mildly electrocuted yourself (my fault for not replacing that light bulb sooner) and I caught you eating more than a pea-sized amount of toothpaste, though not much more, thankfully. You’re a cat with nine lives and I know it’s only going to get worse the older you get. The upside of your sensory seeking personality is that your life will probably be full of adventure; the downside is that we will probably take more trips to the ER than is desirable (ideal number being zero).
