I don’t have a lot of pictures of the boys and me.
Oh, I have a lot of pictures of the boys.
And I have a couple pictures of me.
But I don’t have a lot of pictures of the three of us. As the person who is usually behind the camera, it’s just one of those things. So when my friend offered to take a picture of us with her cell phone, I was actually pretty happy.
Sure, her cell phone didn’t have the highest quality resolution, but who cared? Slightly blurred has always been my best look.
When she showed me the picture on her cell phone, I was delighted. Awesome! Finally, a decent picture with my two boys. We were all wearing clean clothes, all three of us were looking at the camera – perfect. Visions of a new Facebook profile picture danced in my head.
I asked her to send it to me, and she did.
And then I saw the picture.
I mean, I’d seen it on her tiny cell phone screen, but this time I really saw it.
