The other day my neighbour popped in to show me the school pictures of her adored #1 daughter. I gave the appropriate "Oh beautiful! How sweet! Such a nice smile" but was not very sincere with any of my comments. The pictures were typical student pictures, shot as quickly as the shutter could click.
I thought back to my horrible student pictures that inevitably went into the yearbook for posterity.
Why did I always have a bad hair day on THAT particular day? Why did the bags under my eyes have handles? Why was it I looked as if I gained 20lb over night? And of course the school uniform certainly didn't add to the look!
I hated those school pictures. I never had one taken that was flattering in any way. Just like my neighbour, my Mom proudly showed them to all her friends. I guess that's what Moms do.
Good Night for now.
