I don’t photograph well!

27 Dec

It has been a tough a few days. I have been very sick with an upper respiratory infection, head cold, etc…

But worse off, on Christmas Eve the family wanted to take a few “nice” photos together. We gathered in pairs, threes and even as a group of four and posed over and over. And all I kept hearing was “MOM! Would you stop making that face!” I never even realized I was making one! I was repeatedly told how horrible I looked in each and every picture.

Apparently part of my Christmas gift was going to be a picture of me and my daughter added to a wonderful poem that she wrote for me. Well. Only one pic out of about 50 that were taken was deemed even remotely acceptable.

As a tweenager Ican understand my daughter not liking me very much, but not liking any pictures of me either….now that’s a little rough! I thought I was supposed to be the one who hated myself in pictures. I wasn’t even given that option! This is going to be a tough few years considering she’s only 12.

Well I will make the best of it since it’s the thought that counts. The poem is wonderful, MOSTLY, I am not really frosty in my opinion. But then again seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes is supposed to be enlightenling.

Right?
