Ava and Mama

So I need to bring a picture of Ava and myself to school tomorrow (I'm assuming for some sort of mother's day art project. I just love kids' art. Yeah.) And so I went looking for one, because Nick forgot to shoot one yesterday and he's got duty today. So I looked through the somewhat messy 2010 folder. It's been a long year and it's very unorganized, so I glanced at them all. ALL OF THEM. No luck, nothing of just me and Ava. So I go to 2009. Ditto. WTF? There's not a single picture of just me and Ava in 2009? Nope. Lots of me and Warren. Lots of Ava and Nick. Lots of Scott and Ava. TONS of Ava and Warren.

Surely Jenn, you must be exaggerating, there must be a few, you just don't like the way you look.

No. There's not even a picture of me and Ava where I'm too ugly and I don't want to send it. Seriously.

I had to pull out our backup discs. I found these in the May 2008 folder. That means the last time I took a shot of just me and Ava was when she was two and a half.

And then, since I obviously don't need sleep anymore, I played around trying to figure out how people do side by side pics. This is all I came up with. Why are they square instead of normal picture shapes? And this was REALLY hard. Does anyone know a better way? Please?


BTW I went with the one where we're kissing each other. Hopefully the teacher won't be able to tell that she's only two years old in it.


  1. Aww, those are so sweet! I have the exact same problems... though lately, I don't really want to remember just how "round" all of my features seem to be. But, I'm always the one behind the camera, so if something happens to me while the kids are still young, they won't have any pics to remember what I look like!
    About the side by sides... I got to thinking more on that... Check your settings under "select post editor" and see if checking "old editor" makes it easier for you align your pics the way you want. I'm not sure if that makes a real difference, but I recently changed mine to the new post editor and had to change it back because it wouldn't let me do the pics the way I wanted. Hope that helps!
    Have a GREAT weekend.

  2. I. LOVE. YOUR. BLOG. Seriously. I had the same problem not too long ago when someone wanted to interview me and asked for A picture of me and my kids. I didn't have one. WHAT a loser. And the ones I had of me with any varied combination of children I was either pregnant or laying in the hospital bed after giving birth...
