safety pins

I think my first memory of Mom is of her changing baby Nin's diaper. Nin was this tiny pink form which Mom laid over this large cloth diaper, which she wrapped loosely around her legs and then pinned with these enormous safety pins. I'm not sure why I was so struck by the pins, but in a photo I have of Lisa, Jimmy and I playing in the sandbox (probably same year), Lisa and I are wearing our yard pants; dear Jimmy has these oversized shorts on that are held up by...yes, an oversized safety pin.
