December 12

This morning we painted ourselves silly¬†while Jason, in Clara’s words, “painted the basement silly.” My favorite moment (among many good ones) was when Clara not-so-gently reminded me to put the camera down because I had offered to hold her cat still while she painted. I said, “Oh, I’m sorry. I forgot to do my job.” Ian sweetly reminded her, “No, when Mommy takes pictures, she is doing her job because she’s a photographer.”
