This is McKade’s first year of school. He’s in Kindergarten and I think that is a pretty special thing.
And this is why I am kicking myself for screwing up the school pictures. Not once, but TWICE! Twice damn it!
McKade was sick the day they did class pictures last fall…This was out of my control, there was nothing I could do about it. But then I went and screwed up the picture retakes by forgetting to request them.
Some time in February I learned there would be “Spring” pictures taken and of course I thought all would be well. But here’s what happened:
I have a relatively strong belief that kids should wear their “nicer” clothes for school pictures. And they especially should NOT be wearing their favorite cartoon character/superhero/race car/sports team t-shirt for picture day. But I allow insist that McKade choose his own outfits for school. I learned early on that fighting over his wardrobe was NOT a battle I wanted to have everyday.
As a direct result, McKade has become the “layering king”. He often wears a t-shirt, and a long-sleeve shirt, and sometimes a sweatshirt. Now granted this does produce a lot of extra laundry for me, but my oldest son has learned to take responsibility for this part of his day and that seems like a fair trade-off. Until…the spring pictures came home showing my son in his favorite transformer t-shirt.
Damn It, Damn It, Damn It!! Shit, Shit, Shit!!
