Embarrassing Photo of Mom

 Well this is a "different" sort of post I suppose.......Mom probably will have a fit when she sees I snuck this photo from her album but that's the only way to get any INTERESTING photos of her I think!

Now I'll tell you the story behind this photo!   My Mom's Mom entered this photo in a contest in New York City for a catalog company looking for baby models (a million years ago!).   My Mom's photo won the contest.   She was going to be a professional model with an agency and her Mom was going to have to take my Mom on the train from Long Island, NY into the BIG CITY every time they needed my Mom for a photo shoot.    My Mom's Mom took her in ONLY ONCE - it was a very LONG day and my Mom was a cranky baby and tired and her Mom said "THIS IS NOT WORTH IT!!!!" so she was only a model for one day.   Period.   

Embarrassing?   Well there are lots of embarrassing things my Mom has done but probably being a cranky baby model was the LEAST embarrassing of them all.

Hugs, Teddy

We think it was Gramma who learned the best lesson that day ! Your Mom won and no one can take that away from her !

I'm sure the people who would have been on the train to hear my Mom cry all the way into the big city appreciated that she didn't become a model for longer than one day though!!!! HAHAHAHA
