The Elusive Mother's Day Photo

So this is the best Mother's Day photo I got. All in all, not bad, but it was a long journey to get there.
This one is close, but notice Mr. Googley Eyes...
Then there is this attempt. Not bad, except for the Nose Picker.
In this one, Eldest Daughter is actually smiling, but Mr. Googley Eyes is missing his head.
Ahh, now this one is nice. Actually, this was the first photo taken that day. Everyone still fresh and willing to cooperate. I thought it was perfect, until it was brought to my attention that one of my children was missing from the photo. Nice.

So there you have it. A very typical photo essay of life with me as mother. It may be messy, but eventually, it works.

Too funny! I have been there too. I would love to have a family picture but I think about the poor photographer and the patience they would have to have!
