When we came home from the playground Friday afternoon Mabel helped me lower the blinds in the living room against the blasting western sun. Shortly afterward, Daddy arrived from his shopping trip. We heard about the blue jeans he did find and the umbrella he did not find.
Then he went off to the kitchen to make a big salad. Mabel settled in with her friend the mechanical frog, studying the workings of its underside.
Raising the blinds, we made the last photo (below) in imitation of her mother's well-known ghost-baby Polaroids.
