Took the Wild Things to get new passport photos the other day. Apparently those things expire after awhile. And it had been … awhile.
The Wild Things were champions about the whole deal, very brave soldiers. You might be thinking, “What’s the big deal? It’s just a picture, it’s not like they’re getting a shot.” To which I would reply with this:
Yeah, that’s how passport photos in the past have gone. That’s Seven Year Old up there, btw. About 6 years ago. Sheesh, that kid was blond. Or maybe it just looks that way contrasted against this beet red face…
I was particularly concerned about Five Year Old, because he’s been the most historically picture shy one of the bunch.
But, I briefed him pretty well before hand on what was going to go down, and to my pleasant surprise, he did a mean mug for the camera. And to keep our passport experience memorable, he was sporting a sweet scratch on his face.
And check out how luxurious Seven Year Old’s ‘do looked. It may not be as blond anymore, but it’s still got the magic.
Aaaand, one more laugh for the day. I won’t share Eleven Year Old’s most recent photo, but let me assure you that she has passport redeemed herself. Her last passport photo is, literally, the worst picture of her ever taken. Ever. She had lost all four of her front teeth. And then she, proudly, flared her nostrils and pulled back her lips in a great big smile…
Yeah, I can’t even look at that without shaking my head. *shakes head*
Anyway, just one more thing out of the way for our new, Canadian, adventure! Oh, and guess what we found right across from the passport station at CVS?
Yeah, we couldn’t resist. :)
