This is why you hire a pro to take your family portrait #NotQuiteInThePicture, a photo by MPriceMitchell on Flickr.
Flora was home with the sniffles yesterday so I worked from home to be with her.
I started my day at the office so I got to do the cliché commuter thing and head back to Union station and wait an hour for the next train since I missed the train I was hoping to catch.
I may have whisper-screamed a very bad word when I watched the train drive away. I’m a lady so I won’t repeat it here.
After supper, we decided to all have a snuggle on the couch. Sick kids like to snuggle.
Flora then decided we should take a picture of the moment. I took some with the front-facing camera on my phone so I could try to compose them, and some with the regular camera so they were better quality.
Most pictures were shaky, blurry, blown-out messes (see the other one I posted on Flickr – we look kinda cute, but the picture looks awful), but this one makes me smile.
It also reminds me to get a family portrait taken by a professional. When we’re all dressed and not flopped at unflattering angles on the couch in weird light.
