Careful How You Crop


Okay, this one is for my mom. She LOVES this picture. It is a prime example of why you should always frame and/or crop your photos carefully.

In case you're confused, this was two years ago when I was about 9 months pregnant for Ivy (as is evidenced by the painfully faked smile, oh yeah, and the belly).

Kai was standing in front of me and her hair was, um, placed in the most awkward place possible. Mom took this picture not realizing **blushing** what exactly she was making the photo look like.

But, she sends it to me every 6 months or so after she comes across it and nearly passes out from the hilariousness. Then she sends it to my sisters. And, God knows who else.

Last time, she sent it with a poem:

oh dear, i fear its time for you shave.
grab a razor and be brave.
enter the gates of furry heaven
how many hours will it take?
hopefully not 7.

your carpet and drapes don't match!!!

She's hilarious. And I am never letting her near me with a camera again. Ever.

That is too great. Nina is wildly hilarious. And you are amazingly unfortunate.

Now THAT is some funny stuff. And I hope you are totally glad that you have a mom who can be silly like that, because she could be a big prude and REALLY make you crazy.
