This is the comment (almost verbatim) a friend of mine made to me almost a year ago after emailing me pictures of our kids out together: "I hope you don't mind, but I photoshopped the mark on J's face so you would have a nice picture."
You photoshopped my kid's face?!? Why would you do that? I don't even remember this "mark" on her face but I'm sure it was one of many since she's a kid and an active one at that...
And so that I would have a "nice picture"?? Umm now I have an incorrect picture of my kid because now I will always remember that there was a mark on her face that someone felt was so offensive that it had to be edited out.
J at her 2nd birthday with a rash on her face
(not edited!) A reminder that she's allergic to penicillin!
Just curious what other parents out there do...do you edit? or leave your kid as-is??
