Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and Madonna has plenty to be thankful for this year. Various medical-grade toxins have rendered her near-ageless in appearance, and she’s gotten plenty of late-in-the-year attention because of Cher. But the one thing that had Madonna exercising an attitude of gratitude is that all six of her kids came together and spent Thanksgiving with her.
Things have been messy between Madonna and her oldest son, 18-year-old Rocco, over the past couple of years. Rocco wanted to go live with his dad Guy Ritchie, but Madonna wasn’t having any of it. Eventually she caved, and Rocco’s home was at Guy’s place. It was a mess (to say the least). But clearly Madonna and son have patched things up enough to share a scoop of sweet potato poon. Yesterday Madonna posted the following picture of Rocco with 22-year-old Lourdes, 13-year-old David, 12-year-old Mercy, and 6-year-old twins Estere and Stella.
Madonna and co. celebrated turkey day in Malawi, the birthplace of 4 of her 6 kids.
Madonna’s Instagram account is roughly 99.69% selfies of her own face, so it’s a nice change to see just a picture of her kids, all happy and smiling. They’re probably happy because they’re about to eat, or because they won the hard-fought battle to keep the picture Madonna-free. Madonna prides herself on being the coolest mom this side of Regina George’s house. I’m willing to bet that all six kids only agreed to such a picture if Madonna would promise she wouldn’t slide in at the last minute in a platinum grill that read THANKZ, with her butt glazed like a roasted bird and turkey booties covering her nipples.
