Today I needed to gather a couple of pictures together for Dannan to take to kindergarten. His teacher had sent home a paper bag along with a note that read how his class was doing a project called “Uniquely Me” which required pictures of them as a baby, toddler and today.
I quickly realized that all my pictures of Dannan were online and I started to dig through my facebook photo album when I came across a photo that was actually from is passport. We had taken him to get his picture taken multiple times and each time, the passport office rejected it. They complained about his skin being too shiny, eyes weren’t open enough or he had a smile. Smiles are forbidden in passport photos. Finally, we were able to capture an image and this image was accepted by the passport office. His passport was issued and we were off on our family trip to Florida.
Imagine being the border patrol officer looking at this photo. Many weren’t able to keep a straight face when they saw this.
