Lisa in mother’s pearls sits at a vanity and places her rhinestone tiara on her head. Lipstick stains her baby lips, her baby cheeks, and her baby earlobes. She couldn’t find earrings so she drew them instead. She announces to her stuffed animals, “I’m going to a very important ball. Behave while I’m gone.” Mary in pearls stands over her daughter to place her lace veil on her head. Her mother perfects the lipstick on her baby’s lips, pinches her baby’s cheeks, and touches her own mother’s earrings on her baby’s earlobes. She whispers to her daughter, “I love you.”
