I just asked Hazel, who appears to be coming down with a cold, “Do you have a crusty nose?”
“Yeah. Christina does have a nose.”
Christina is my brother Andy’s fiancée. I love how Hazel takes it in stride that I might ask her such a question. It probably makes just as much sense to her as other things grownups are always asking her.
Henry, Rose, Mabel, Hazel. I managed to get them all to wear clothes I made for them (some of these things were made years ago) for my cousin’s wedding reception last weekend, so I wanted to get a picture afterward. Hazel’s hand-me-down jumper is really still too big. Henry is fierce.
Henry’s shirt is from a pima woven plaid fabric my mom bought at Britex in San Francisco in the 70s. She passed it on to me and I made this shirt when Ike was little. I made a matching doll shirt that Ike never played with, but Henry loves to put it on his teddy bear.
