Oh, I am SO going to blog about you!

in Humor Essays, Parenting

I am writing this blog post today because I am concerned over something that was said to me in one of my comments. This comment came from my very own daughter. It was about her Bridal shower and then my blog post about it. She was mortified because the pictures I posted of her were not , in her mind, good pictures. You all know how 20 somethings are, right? For one, they are all beautiful and young with good skin. So when I hear this from a 20 something-er…I have a hard time sympathizing. At my age, when my picture is taken, all I pray for is that it will not look like I’m one of those “look what Meth does to you” photos.

So I thought I would get my lovely internet best buds to help me out today. Because I just can’t figure out why Audrey is having a hard time with the photos I am using to tell the story of her Bridal shower!

I mean, I just take the pictures…I can’t control how they will turn out, can I?

I’m confused as to why she wasn’t happy with them. It’s true I’ve misplaced my glasses and can’t see very well. However, from what I can tell through the slight blur, she looks fine! Right?

I have been told we look alike. This is a picture of us SOOC (straight out of the camera). I should have done a little photoshop retouching on myself. I usually do that, but this photo was really good of me so I didn’t have to do any re-touching at all. Isn’t that amazing? I didn’t think I looked that good. What a nice surprise.
And Audrey is fine too, isn’t she? I don’t understand AT ALL, what all the fuss is about.



Confused, in NC.

Looks good to me, Debbie, and my eyes are just as young as yours are!! Those crazy kids! Gotta love ‘em!!

Deb February 8, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Hi Kaye!!

Angela February 7, 2012 at 11:15 pm

BAHAHAHAHA…as a mid-20’s-something, I can assure you, she’ll eventually get over herself. ;-) (I’m 26. When I was 20-21, I was the same way she is. I think the few years between early 20’s to mid 20’s changes most women…for the better.)

Yeah – gotta love photoshop. It can take 10 years off you in a few flat seconds! haha.

Stephanie February 8, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Hahaha – I DIED reading this. You’re too funny! :)

And even past all of the “unphotoshopped” pictures, you and your daughter are just BEAUTIFUL :)

Have a good Wednesday <3

yes she does have a blog but she doesn’t post to it much. I’m scared that will change now though. lol

Mercy Mathews February 10, 2012 at 5:43 am

This was hilarious! Every time I call for a family photograph, my three sons run in three different directions so in our home, any photo is a great photo! You have a new follower! :)

OldDogNewTits April 4, 2012 at 10:15 am

My daughter is only 9 but I so plan to take a page from the Book of You in about (let’s hope) 15 years. I mean, if we can’t laugh at our kids, what’s the point in having them? Funny.

Julie April 4, 2012 at 12:40 pm

That last photo is really perfect. You must have had the settings just right. :)

fadderly April 4, 2012 at 1:14 pm

that’s is HILARIOUS!!!

kids today…they are so caught up in their looks!

Sarcasm Goddess April 6, 2012 at 11:58 pm

She is stunning! I don’t know what her issue is.

sparkling74 April 7, 2012 at 6:21 pm

THose are great. I can’t imagine why she’d complain. Found you at finding the funny.

Kelley April 12, 2012 at 4:53 pm

You are so funny! Your daughter looks beautiful (you both do!), but I know how it is when I don’t like a picture of myself. I hate it when my husband says, “Well, that’s how you look!” I’m like, “NO, IT ISN’T!”

(Thanks for linking this up to #findingthefunny last week!)

Deb April 12, 2012 at 10:55 pm

thanks Kelley! :)

Bag Man April 27, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I must tell you that if you are the example of what meth does to you, keep it up! Your daughter should hope to look as good as you do when she reaches your age. She’s a beautiful girl, even without the photoshopping :-) but she takes after her Mom.

Faceinpages May 19, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Love your sense of humor. Thanks for that.

Donna McBroom-Theriot June 13, 2012 at 3:21 pm

This was too funny. I just recently took a picture of my niece and my daughter (twenty-something) in the NYC subway. It was cute. I was told that I needed to warn them so they could pose! So much for in the moment! lol

Deb June 13, 2012 at 11:07 pm

sigh – the important things in life to a 20 year old, huh? At my age I just say “hurry up and take the dang picture!”

IASoupMama July 13, 2012 at 11:58 am

Love it! And you are both gorgeous women. And I’m kinda glad my kids are little yet because they only get excited when they see pictures of themselves on the computer.

Deb July 16, 2012 at 11:46 am

thank you! Enjoy the young years because soon you will have to approve all pictures before sharing! lol

Reptile Sadie July 16, 2012 at 6:31 pm

I am not wearing my glasses either, but I think you both look great. I loved the stuffed moose head in the photos, my husband would be jealous of such a prized possession. ;)

Deb July 16, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Wait – there was a stuffed moose head?? I’m going to go back and look at the photo again HAHAHAHA

Julie June 18, 2013 at 12:07 am

bahahaha. This is so funny. You’re glowing in the last one, glowing! :)

Deb McCormick June 18, 2013 at 10:36 am

Cheryl Nicholl June 18, 2013 at 11:22 am

I’m 21 and walk out of the house with a panty line on my yoga pants, a baggy-spit-up-on t-shirt and no bra. But then again I had a baby early.
