Here’s the blog post I wrote on this back when it was finished in 2008. It went on to win a prize at the Arts International show in 2009.
The Mommy Glove, memories from my first years of parenting. Click for explanation and in process pictures.

Orion’s belt for studying the stars, and the black with orange is our dog’s paw print.
The Mommy which was my only name in those days, a question mark at top right to show that there are always surprises in parenting. the figures encased in orange and gold are triathletes which our kids and my husband did, and the green thumb in the background represents my older daughter’s fascination with lizards and nature.
