On our first trip to turn in our passport applications and have our photos taken, I could not have imagined the monumental task ahead of me. At our local post office, the 8 of us stood in line and one by one we looked straight into the camera and didn’t smile (they don’t like smiles … More The reality of taking toddler passport photos.
This was an emotional day for me, far more than any of the girlies’ first birthdays.
