This is awesome! Since it’s not my invention, I can tout without reservation, crediting the handiwork of The Forum newspaper designer Rob Beer. The photos are mine, true, but Rob did a fabulous job of sorting through the maze of pics I sent him to come up with this “header,” the newest pictorial symbol of “Peace Garden Mama.” All five of my children and various moods are represented through the composite, which speaks to the sometimes serene and commonly chaotic world of our busy, “literally a handful” household.
I do have to credit one other person. My oldest son was photographer and “designer” (all his idea) for the fabulous photo in the middle showing youngest child trapped in a cat carrier. I had very little to do with it, other than to okay use of the camera for the shot. The setup and bribes utilized were all the brainchild of oldest son, who, as you can see, has a slight sense of humor. The expression, however, was completely ad-libbed by tiny actor himself.
Is it any wonder my little escapees in the background are so eager to get out of dodge???!!!
Thanks Rob, and I hope you readers will enjoy all of the visuals and words to follow.
