DEAR MAE

MAE

Mae,

You are such an expressive talker. Whether you’re discussing dry toast, the greatest roller coaster experience, the process of sliding a boot onto your foot, or retelling a story you just heard regarding fried pickles.

These photos were taken the other day as we were on our umpteenth hour of the Stranger Danger talk.

You had been going on and on with questions and setting up various scenarios, what I just grabbed the camera, slyly hovered it over my face and began taking shot after shot. These are milliseconds apart from one another. My face hurt from smiling. Something I didn’t know could happen while discussing such a topic.

You’re so brave and intelligent, sweet Mae.
