Now I am THAT mom everyone is judging

So I forgot it was picture day the other week. I often do in the Spring because I usually buy the Fall pictures and do not need another round of school pictures. However, I usually at least pretend I am going to buy them by sending the children in something "picture-worthy."


Not this time. Note, however unplanned, they still both ended up in matching t-shirts. T-shirts and athletic pants, mind you, but matching. Then to boot they sent a note home saying they were going to take "graduation" pictures of the departing 2nd graders. Also not wanting those pictures, I put another mind-block up because I was asked to send him in a white shirt for those pictures. Turns out we forgot on that day too and the teacher had him borrow one from a classmate. Oops.

Great. I'm THAT mom now. And who needs to buy pictures when I can scan them for free instead of paying $13 a picture? (oh, guess I'm also THAT mom too!)

I have to say...that graduation picture is darling. His expression looks adorable.

I don't know...I think the crooked tie adds that little extra somethin'...

C pulled his own fix by putting his fashionable coat on over his crappy t-shirt for spring pictures. Did I mention I HATE spring pictures? And don't get me started on school pictures in general. But nevertheless very cute kids, even if they are wearing t-shirts ;o)

I've never heard of Spring pics until Grace started school this year. And personally, I think we should all be "that Mom" a little more. She sure has a lot less to worry about :)

At least your boys look darling. Our school pictures, regardless of outfit and hairstyle, have an angry face. John has no patience for the picture people.
