To make my blog more equal opportunity for you visual learners out there, I will now include a weekly post of an image that comes up when I google “mother image.” Because I am well-read and classy I will then enlighten you by interpreting how the image captures real moments in Motherhood.

Please enjoy the first installation below:

Thomas Sully, Mother and Child, 1827

If you breastfed your baby then you have been here. Clearly Sully is capturing the moment that a mother decides wearing a shirt is pointless because her bottomless pit of a child is just going to suck on her titties all the time. And, when they are not being ravaged by the child (or husband, not pictured) they just squirt fluids all over anyway requiring a new shirt but there are no shirts left because it has been 24 hours since laundry was done which means that all fabrics in the house are again filthy with puke, milk, and possibly defecation.

The mother, exhausted, passes out possibly from Vodka but definitely from exhaustion. The child, in an effort to participate in the trend of green living, clamps the nipple so as not to waste any precious resources.

Obviously that is what Sully was getting at.
