Fuzzy Emma



Ok, so yesterday I mentioned trying to take pictures & video at the same time and it reminded me of something ...

Earlier this year I was reading through the FCC (Families with Children from China) newsletter that came out after the Chinese New Year event & saw the picture posted above. I laughed and thought, now that's silly - why would someone take a picture of that. And even if someone took that picture, why in the world would they put that in the newsletter - the girls are all fuzzy. Then I looked a little harder and thought, hmmm, that was taken while Emma was dancing. Studying it a little more, oh cool, there's a fuzzy Emma! Thankfully she had on that bright pink shirt so I could pick her out easily. Hmmm, that looks like my watch. Oh my, that looks like my camera. Then it hit me, THAT'S ME.

I guess I cracked someone up that night. Or, maybe the photographer was wondering what kind of goofy mother would do something like that?

And where was Brian during all of this? Well, he was standing over to the side, watching his baby girl dancing and just enjoying that moment in time. Makes me wonder which of us has the right idea? :-) And maybe that's just not a question I want to know the answer to.

I find it hard to even get rid of those not so good photos. The ones where only us moms can make out our kids. Just a goofy mommy thing I guess.
