Isn’t it like this at your house?

Cassatt_1 I have posted before about how I love Mary Cassatt paintings, so I’ll share another one. It’s especially moving to me since, whenever I sew, my children quietly gather at my lap like this. Yeah, right.

What this picture doesn’t show us is that this little wisp of a girl was probably asking her mom for a cup of milk for the 432nd time, and just outside the picture, she was kicking the dog.

    Yeah, and at my house the item being sewed by the mom would be something that a kid needed to have ON THEIR BODY in one minute so we could all hurry and get in the car and race to a choir concert or something!

    One of my most favorite museum trips was the time we saw a few dozen of her paintings…
    it was my favorite because we brought the boys and we sat them down in front of a couple of the paintings and asked them what was going on.
    In front of one of them Middle said –
    I think that little girl did a bad thing and is trying to tell her mom about it.
    -so interesting to hear what they thought!
