Laughing Your Way through Infertility: It’s Picture Day!
Let’s face it, picture day is a big deal. They forever capture a moment in time of school-age awkwardness. These are the stuff legends are made of and soon your Instagram and Facebook newsfeed will be flooded with your friends showing off their children’s cute annual school photo. You will see each picture and sigh (maybe even roll your eyes in jealousy) as you look forward to the day when you can hopefully brush your kiddo’s hair just so, dress them to the nines and beg them to smile beautifully for the camera. However, until that day arrives, let’s laugh out our sorrows and jealousy woes by looking at a few school pictures that didn’t go as planned, shall we?
I’ll start off with my own, but let me just say that my very first school picture was absolutely adorable. Just look at that puppy dog turtle neck and pink suspenders. CUTE!
After that, each picture turned into nothing but sheer horror and blackmail material for my brother. Can you believe the picture below was a retake? My hair looks like a peeled onion! The first one I took weeks earlier was worse if that is even possible.
But enough about me! Let’s move on to some real dandy’s!
I’ve come to realize after viewing the following school pictures, I won’t always be around to control and make sure everything goes smooth and perfect in their lives…
Maybe I could volunteer on picture day and lend out a hairbrush or two…
It looks as though I will be putting my foot down when it comes to bringing props. YIKES!
It appears an outfit can either make or break a school photo…
They say every picture tells a story but I’m not sure what story these pictures are telling…
It’s obvious. School pictures capture it all and I can’t help but look forward to one day embarrassing my future baby birds with their awkward phases and astounding fashion sense. But until I am able to plaster their pictures all over social media, I will just have to settle on embarrassing my parents with their ah-may-zing school photos.
Nice pig tails Mommers! At least they are even on both sides.
Awesome bow tie Daddyo!
