Me and Mr. T

I always swore I wouldn't be one of those moms who's never in the pictures. I want my kids to have a record of their childhood, but I also want them to have a record of me in it. However.  I don't love the way I look in pictures is Peter is not a great photographer and the few that do have me in them don't turn out well. This one was taken by Miss E on our walk on Sunday. I hadn't showered, was wearing a wool hat for most of the day and obviously need to re-dye my hair (it's pretty bad, no?). But dang it, Miss E took a picture of my smiling Mr. T and I. I'm not deleting it.

In other bad picture news, here is Mr. T's school picture:

People. What happened here? He looks like he's about to be poked with a stick by an axe murderer. That's my smiling Mr. T. You know, the adorable kid with dimples in the first picture of the post? I cannot figure out what events occurred to create this travesty of photography. So now I'm trying to figure out if I should have them re-taken or not. Thoughts?


  1. Yes, indeed, I would have them retaken; that’s not his best look for certain !~! The shot of you and Mr T is great, never mind the hair; I only see the smiles.

  2. You, my dear, are toooooo dang critical! Get over it! You obviously do not know how really beautiful you are--even downright pretty, and in this pic with Theo, too--who is also adorable in all his realness and little boyness--smiles 'n dimples are good too--and I know I'm biased about you two--but I also know I'm right when I'm right!
