Mothers and Sons Across the World

“Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face,” said once the British author George Eliot. These pictures truly show the love, closeness and joy that mothers and sons experience together.


Irina from Good To Be Mom

Good To Be Mom
My sons are my teachers, my motivators, my challenges and my happiness – I believe I am not educating my children, but rather my children and I are involved in a process of spiritual growth, where we learn from each other, we succeed, we make mistakes and we change together.


Frances from Discovering the World Through My Son’s Eyes 

Discovering the World Through My Son's Eyes
The day that he was born a new woman emerged from me, and I have never been the same: I call him “La luz de mis ojos” (The light of my eyes) – my greatest blessing who will be 7 years old this month.

His name means The Ruler of Peace and he truly brings happiness and peace to us all!


Eolia from La Cite des Vents

La Cite Des Vents
He loves to play with this game of “construction” (Steckblumen), on his own, with his sister or with me… so he built crowns for each member of the family: he was the Prince and Knight, and I was the Queen [why do my children refer to me as “Queen Mom”?]

​I never imagined I would be the mom of boys but there’s nothing more powerful than the love boys have for their mom! (picture is at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin).

My then 14-months-old boy: a very cute little daredevil who loves kisses.


Diana from LadydeeLG

My little one begged me to go into the sprinkler with him… so I did and had a blast: there’s nothing like seeing life through the eyes of your child – they are so carefree and happy.

  1. Lovely photos! George Eliot however, was a female author called Mary Ann Evans who had to write under the pen name of George Eliot. Doesn’t make the quote any less significant for the parent and child relationships.

    1. Hi Lucy, yes, I remembered that after I had written the introduction, but decided to leave it in (after a bit of moderation), as I like the quote very much. Thank you for your comment and for stopping by.
