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 5x7) 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?
