Suzanne is the daughter. She is the slender one. She is in her 30's.
Both have one and they are both putting them together. They aren't angry they are just swording and playing.
They live in the the South in Mississippi. Mama is teaching her daughter what to do if something happens so she can take care.

There is an audience because of the portrait background and they are poised to look not serious. They are learning to use the ups and downs of the elements they have.
There are two other sisters in the family. They are younger sisters than Suzanne. Their names are Marianne and Lucille.
There has to be a boy in the family to have those babies. The dad (or husband) is off to war.
That is why they are being protective of themselves. That is why mama is teaching her daughter how to protect herself.
