What happens when a photo Mum's got of you is the WORST?!
I’m so upset – I’m mortified. I need a real cool place to hide.
I never will let one soul see this ugly, gross picture of me.
I can’t believe I looked like that for ever just one second flat.
My face looks squished. My nose looks pug. And my left eyeball looks like a bug!
This photograph must disappear. I’d die if my friends saw it here.
Wait…mom is talking to my dad, I think things might not be so bad.
I think she’s solved my problem, yup! She said she’s gonna blow it up!
