With university visits making up part of our Christmas holidays, lessons in self sufficiency and development of life skills become part of your days. I’m glad we have time still, and it’s just part of the preparation process right now – we’ll get there, both of us,
love you, Mama, xx
This is part of ARTIFACT MOTHERHOOD – a project shared with other female artists who are documenting our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words.
Our seasons are short snippets in the midst of real life where we pause to remember, reflect or document. Now go to the next artist Jo Haycock to see where she is in this Season of Motherhood.

Hollie Stokes - I love your perspective and framing here. Beautiful storytelling, Kirsty.
Caro - it’s like you are there for her, but allowing her to be doing that on her own too. Just like this process of getting there, the both of you. I am so moved by this !
Jo Haycock - It feels our worlds are still aligned Kirsty… we’ve been visiting a-level schools and colleges these past weeks. Hearing your words and loving this illustration of your daughter and your relationship.
Paige - I resonate with your words. My oldest starts college in the fall and it feels like a whole new chapter in both of our lives. I love the perspective of your image with what you said.
