Don't you just hate those supermodel children in professional photo shoots with their stage school looks and sickly sweet smiles..?

It's ironic, because whenever I ask her to pose for a photo, she does this...

Back in May, a poster went up at Amelie's nursery saying that a professional photographer would be visiting at the end of the month to take pictures of the children. I assumed it was part of a police crackdown on juvenile crime, but we didn't know if it would involve Amelie, as she only does three afternoons a week, and tends to miss out on all the exciting stuff (like lunch). We did ask her a few times if anyone had taken her photo at nursery, but she's been taught to deny everything under questioning, so she kept saying no.

Fortunately, Amelie and the truth are virtual strangers...

When I took her to nursery yesterday, I was handed nine miniature proofs from a local portrait photographer. They're each the size of a postage stamp, which is why you can see all the dust on my scanner when I blow them right up.

We can buy prints at a cost of £8 for a small one, £10 for medium, £15 large, or just thirty quid for something you can put above the fireplace. Assuming you trust the power of blu-tac. Unfortunately for our bank balance, about eight of the nine are keepers, so we could be looking at a hefty bill...

I think I'll have two on a keyring for £3.50.
