Sisters Act

Sisters Act is based on a photo of myself at 3 years old, Pie at 2 and Honey at 1. Because we were all closely spaced together, we grew up helping my mom in her chores.

Journal reads: Acting as a sister means hard work. At ages 3, 2 and 1, we helped mommy take care of us. We knew how to push baby carriages, then later, grocery carts. This act prepared us to be there for each other for life.
