Jane Keeping Her Chips Away From Ellen



The struggle began at floor level, then moved up onto the table. When I went for my camera, Ellen was standing on tiptoe, but by the time I got back, she had shifted to this seated position.

You can't see it well in the picture, but Jane's outfit features a belt she made from cutting up an old men's tie (one left over from the Easter egg project), fastened with a safety pin. There was much crying and negotiating with Zuzu before school to ensure that she was able to wear just the right white t-shirt (because the other 5 white t-shirts they have between them just wouldn't do) for the ensemble.

It took me a second to realize they were on the table rather than the floor (and then I was frightened.)

It's so hard to be the bearer of chips when you have little siblings.

I too had not realized they were on the table. I thought the apparent nearness of the chips to the ceiling was an optical illusion. Whew. And lol.
