Thanks, Lizza! I'm now hard at work on the movie meme. Sigh! c",)

Yup! That's me and my boy Niccolo. c",)

My husband is a professional photographer. One of the reasons I married him is to be assured that I get good photos all the time. BwaHaHa!

Have a great weekend, Ian! c",)

Thank you for visiting my blog. Love this photo of mother and child. Enjoyed your movie list. You sure know a lot of movies. As for Aristotle's quote, fathers today are committed, loving and dedicated towards their children as their mothers.

Irene Tuazon said...

Oh, you bet. I totally agree there are many SUPER fathers out there both today and during the time of the Greek philosophers - my husband and my own Daddy included! (",)

I believe Aristotle was referring to that singularly unique and extraordinary bond that exists between mother and child which is breathtaking to behold in its beauty. He tried to put his finger on it and that's what he came up with in his day. Very interesting, don't you think? c",)

Thanks for dropping by, Ces!

I was stopping by to thank you for topping by my blog. What an interesting quote. I celebrated the 4th birthdays of my identical twin daughters yesterday and would like to think that if anyone can, I can challenge that quote ;-)

Thanks again

Irene Tuazon said...

Michael - Happy Birthday to your daughters! Must be very exciting to have twins - double the trouble and double the joy! I'm sure you're a terrific Daddy! c",)

Julie & Bearette - Muchas gracias! Catch you again soon! c",)

Beautiful photo!

phaedrus said...

wowow, you're both beautiful!

btw, there have been studies done that show that quote may be true, especially in maternal relatives vs. paternal relatives...

Peg said...

What a beautiful portrait of you and your son. His eyes are stunning...you are such a blessed woman!

Irene Tuazon said...

Jessie, Phaedrus & Peg - Thanks! Mwaaaaah! c",)

Great picture! Our family photos are never anywhere near that good. I think I need to find myself a professional photographer husband! :)

Irene Tuazon said...

Parlancheq - Go! I highly recommend it. Afterwards, the only thing you'll have to worry about is finding enough albums and frames to store your gazillions of photos! c",)
