Going, going, gone!

Marvel Girl both attended and hosted a fancy party earlier this month?

Well, I figured out quite quickly that what she has in style, she definitely lacks in grace.


Not to worry. I am not as cruel of a mommy as I appear to be. When I began to take this picture she was happily swinging. In the split second between when I started pressing the button down and taking the picture, the calamity began.

Amidst my laughter, the horrified-looking woman behind the girls caught her right away.

There were no boo-boos on my fancy gal.

  2. That photo’s a one-in-a-million! She can look back at that and know she is brave!

  3. It is a classic photo. The facial expression on the woman is great, as is the ‘pose’ of your child.

    But please tell me how you made the colour stay on your daughter and turned the rest B&W?

  15. THat is hilarious! And that woman’s expression is just as funny!

  16. What a perfectly timed accidental picture. I laughed when I first saw it, then I felt a little guilty until you said that she didn’t get hurt, then I laughed again. Then I felt guilty again. Is it ok to laugh?
    Love your mad photo shopping skills!
    Thanks for coming to vist my PSF!

  17. I can’t believe it happened at the exact moment of the shutter release! You two will laugh about that for years!

  18. Glad to hear she is ok. What a great shot!

  19. Knowing no one actually got hurt, I LOVE that pic! It cracks me up looking at it. It could totally be me or either of my kids, because we’re just not entirely graceful. Although my mil wanted me to name my daughter Grace. With these genes, that would have been a life long joke. Great pic!!

  20. Somehow I had missed the post about your daughter’s 4th birthday! Too cute! This picture is PRICELESS!!!! Oh, the timing … to be taking a picture at that exact moment. Glad to hear she didn’t get hurt … that makes the picture even better!
