Portrait of a sad boy with his mother



Who’s disappointed with whom here? The mom, because she sees the same apathy and lack of motivation in her son’s inability to swing as she did in her ex-husband, who seemed content to sit and watch life pass him by while opportunity after opportunity came and went, eventually taking its toll on their marriage, but who is now happily remarried with a loving family and a reinvigorated lust for life, while she’s left wondering if it was her fault all along, or the kid because his mom still wears Uggs?

  6. Maybe you're catching the Zeitgeist exactly with your empathy that switches to mocking the mother about her boots but I find this picture really sad because it catches a mood that I know very well and that is al little contagious to children. Even when the picture is not "real".
