Chapter 9, Page 11 Too quiet

Always worry when kids are quiet.

There are children in the house.

There is no noise.


It's pretty amazing how often that progression works out.

Conny wants to play.

This is not going to end well.

Chapter 9, Page 9 Queen of the castle

Definitely forgetting something.

Last Thursday was the 22nd. That's the 20th anniversary of Jacob Wetterling's kidnapping. I was six when that happened, so Mary wasn't born yet. My memories of the time are kinda vague, and I don't think I entirely understood what was going on, but I do remember finding the whole thing rather frightening.

Mary is about to have a similar experience. Just to let you know, I'd planned out this arch before finding out about the coinciding date. Really. Oh, and the following is based strictly on real events. (Being responsible is not fun.)

Chapter 9, Page 8 Hexagonal graph paper

Dad has misgivings.

For those of you who aren't in the know, Mary has just discovered something that has certain groups screaming about Satanism and witchcraft.


I just realized that doesn't narrow it down much.

Chapter 9, Page 7 A key distraction

Introduction to awesome.

A summer of lagging on updates makes for a difficult return to a regular schedule. Doesn't help any that I have a lot of homework. ~.~ I have a lot of MQC drawn, I just haven't inked or scanned any of it in.

Oh well. Try to guess what Mary's discovered. Looking at the tags is cheating.

Chapter 9, Page 6 All together now...

Mary and Peter have quality time.


Little ones do the sweetest things without even thinking. Of course, they can do annoying things in exactly the same way. It balances out. ^_^

Chapter 9, Page 5 Repetative Repetition

Perhaps the most maddening aspect of babies.

I cannot begin to tell you how often I've done something like this.

Chapter 9, Page 4 Bathing Brother

Little brother makes bath time, ah, interesting.

Remember, Mary, parenthood is not boring.

There is one thing even more certain to trigger embarrassment in an older sister than having to watch her little brother in all his naked glory taking a bath. That is realizing that said little bother is about to expose that naked glory to the rest of the world.

Little boys are not born with modesty, are they?
