Tomorrow is picture day at Porter’s school. Before he started “preschool” (this is his 2nd year… and OF COURSE they do preschool pictures!), I said I’d never buy those god awful pictures that they take. They’d never be on MY walls.
Well, they don’t make it to my walls, but I do buy a package, albeit a small one (with just one 5×7) and the picture does grace my scrapbook.
Is it wrong that I’m choosing his clothing and background color to match the scrapbook paper collection (Show & Tell for Porter and School Spirit for Hudson) that I recently purchased to create a 12 year School Album (the Ultimate School Album)? HAHAHA! I’m like… “Ohhh I love this brown “Handsome” shirt (aka… button up collar shirt… Porter calls them Handsome Shirts)… but this blue-green one would match SO much better. Hmm… I wonder if it’d look hideous with a purple background… that scrapbook paper had purples in it….”
This brought back an old-school memory of picture day for me… I remember being lined up and everyone handed a little black pocket comb to “brush” their hair (really? REALLY? If I’d been a mom of a little girl, who’d probably spent the morning perfecting pigtails or in my mom’s case the french braid… only to have someone give my kindergardener a comb to “comb” their flipping perfect hair? HAHA!
What is your most vivid memory of school picture day?
