a portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2014 - inspired by Jodi

He : whiling away a Saturday afternoon fossicking for treasures in the backyard with his metal detector. At the going rate of ten cents per nail, we have a flurry of other children lobbing in to earn some pocket money while clearing our yard of nails and other building detritus. The eldest Menace brother has been over twice already and taken home about eight dollars. 

She : was very quiet in the bath one night. When I snuck in to check on her, she had sorted and organised every last bath toy into those unfinished shelves. I shudder to think how she reached that top shelf!


  1. See - child labour and enterprise at its finest. They just love a repetetive task. I get kids to help me shell all the dried pea and bean seed at work - their parents have to drag them away screaming. 10c a nail is genius! x

  2. gee liongirl looks grown up!....and no it doesn't pay to think about that top shelf x
