My boyfriend says I spend too much time on my phone, that I'm no longer living in the present and life passes me by. Last night, he told me about a magnolia blossom, about the sunset colors, about the birdsong and about how big is our child now. I figured out myself that I escape many things, so I've decided just to look at the flowers, sunsets and clouds on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. On Instagram. And as for this teenager, who calls me mother, I don't know what to say to you. I'm going to question him on Tuesday.
