War and Peace

Mother - being the self-obsessed full grown child in Italian couture that she is - has a ridiculously short attention span, our little battles never last more than a few hours. Of course there is always the cold war raging in the background, and she fights it really well. Being of Russian descent, I guess she knows a thing or two about low intensity warfare.

On Monday I got this pretty illustration from Ivette at Little moon lover. She also did this one to illustrate this post. I love both of them, and they're not that far from the unvarnished truth.
