I Could Look at These All Day


Another milestone: First School Pictures.

Somehow the eightfold sight of my own braided smiling child puts me into a sort of blissed-out trance.

RW begged her to smile on Picture Day. She may have promised to pay her. She can't quite remember; she says she was desperate.

Oh, she is CUTE! So cute that I am going to have to succomb to capital letters! Really; what a beautiful kid.

And I completely understand your wanting to stare and stare at the pictures. Somehow pictures make it all more real. I stare at pic's of my husband and boys all the time, because geez, there they are, a whole family, and somehow attached to me. Blows the mind.

Did I mention your kid is beautiful?

Oh, Bihari, thank you! I was starting to get a little freaked out at having no comments on this particular post, like maybe...my kid isn't cute after all but no one wanted to tell me? Could it be?

I mean, I can bolster my very own ego in the absence of comments, but hey, my kid, you know?

But now I am reassured. Whew. Thanks.

What an adorable little girl! I love the story of possible bribery for a smiling school picture.

We all get one with a note written on the back, right?

I frequently look at pictures of my baby girl on my computer, even when she is sitting right in front of me. And whenever I email pictures of her to other people, I look again and again at the shots I emailed, wondering if the recipients will see one tenth of what I see. One's own child is such a thing of beauty and perfection, though I don't know why captured images seem so compelling in the face of the real thing. But they do.

How did I miss this? How? How?

She is eightfold lovely, dearest elsewhere. Destined for a sorority like my kid. You and I will feel alienated by our daughters' choices, but we will feel alienated together.

Happy New Year to the family!

I remain,
Your fan and friend,
