I'm not much of a photographer, but every so often I try to play with my point and shoot autofocus crap camera for the hell of it. In a deliberate, photographic way, rather than a journalistic way of capturing my family's daily goings on. Every picture in our family is pretty much taken by me, even the ones of me. My husband rarely remembers to photograph us, and when he does, it is because I have been nagging him to take a picture of me with the kids, so that they know that I was in fact in their lives as children. I actually worry about that--dying and my children not having an photographs of me. It is weird.
Anyway, I am writing a piece right this second involving my little peg family, which I painted when pregnant with Thor. I made a little peg person of each person in our family and Beezus plays with them. They always travel with us in our little gnome pocket, which is a felt bag full of little gnomes and peg people. Anyway, I took this photo, while taking a break from writing, and for some reason, I like it. Lucy is the fallen peg baby and the rest of us are in the background. As peg people. Alright, it sounds stupid in blog form.
