  1. They sure don’t appear to be very enthusiast about their careers!

  2. Annie says:

    The Mothers’ faces say it all. They seem to be very supportive and devoted to their daughters.
    Some faces look sad, reflective? if that’s the right expression-, looking far beyond the financial side of things concerning their daughters. Must be a hectic and stressful sort of life, with lots of ups and downs. Not my cup of tea as a mother or for my daughters.
