Afternoon by the Sea (Gravesend Bay), a pastel painting of women in victorian clothes at the seaside with a baby and a dog.

Gravesend Bay (William Merritt Chase, 1888)

Mother, graciously interrupting her own story to introduce the cast members to The Four-Year-Old: “We are talking about my cousin, who you probably don’t remember, because you were too young when you met him.”

The Four-Year-Old: “How young?”

Mother, hedging her bets because she can’t quite remember when she was last saw this particular cousin: “Less than two.”

The Four-Year-Old: “That would be one, Mommyo.”
