"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013" via Che and Fidel.

Lola: Upon being asked if she could sort out the mess in her room, she responded firmly, "I am not a cleaning machine." Teenager much?
Pearl: I looked questioningly at the two little girls in the bath and the flood on the bathroom floor. Pearl's defence - "One of us is responsible but both of us are not responsible."
Stella: I asked her, "Do you know how much I love you? It's a really, really big number, maybe as big as a million. Can you guess?" She thinks for a moment. "Is it 18?"

Previous 52 portraits here.


  1. Your girls crack me up every week Greer! And this week is no exception.
    I am going to add "I am not a cleaning machine" to my arsenal of sayings.

    And PS I love the pom pom on Pearl's hat.

  2. I love hearing snippets of conversations from your girls. They are adorable xx

  3. So funny! Giggling like crazy - the stuff the little ones say just cracks me up! Completely love the cosy hats - my Poppet's wearing one you made in this weeks photos and it's so warm! (I borrowed it from her to go to the snow...!)

  9. Oh that is just too cute! They sound awesome! Visiting via Che and Fidel! : )

  10. Love the comments! They remind me of some my grandchildren have made. Sometimes we don't realise just how verbal they are and how much they take in. Your little ones are growing up.

    I used to mind my granddaughter, now 12, for two days a week for several years. I arrived one morning with a horrible headache caused by a stiff neck. I was sitting on their lounge taking it easy, or trying to, before the day really began. Lounge backed on to stairs with rails and open space.

    I was not impressed when she jumped through the space onto my shoulders.

    Her comment when I protested was , "You not a happy chappy today, Ganma." Still only two years old then.

  11. Love these portraits - your little Stella just looks so scoop-up-able in that last one. And the hats - gorgeous! These are my favourite portraits this week xx


I love comments. Thanks for yours!
