*A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014.* 

Matteo: You've been sick all week, with a fever and cough brought on by a respiratory infection.  You have to use a penguin nebulizer every four hours for about ten minutes.  The first couple of times you screamed and cried and kicked your way through most of it, but after a while, you started enjoying taking your "medin" (medicine).  Now you insist on holding it all by yourself the entire time and when the medicine runs out you say "ALL DONE!" with great satisfaction at your mask-holding performance.  Last night you tried to feed the penguin some of your pizza, a testament to your growing friendship.
