“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

Sunny: She split open her chin this week at school due to play park antics. She avoided stitches thanks to newfangled medical glue, but has had to be limited at the pool all week. Fortunately, kids heal quickly, and by next week, she’ll be back to her usual aquatic tricks. Her teachers told us that she never shed a tear, despite all the blood and the gapping wound under her face. James reported that she was a champ at the pediatrician’s, and Kaki and I rewarded her with homemade ice cream.
Kaki: This hair cut was done on a whim, in the back yard, with an itty bitty pair of nail scissors, one late evening a week or so ago. It just suits her so very much, and I was sick of battling snarls and knots and shaded eyes and sweaty necks.
