I see back to school pictures on Facebook and think how darling everyone’s kids look. Scrubbed and eager for their new year.
Not being goons.
Then I try to TAKE my own back to school pictures, and all of a sudden I’m finding myself fighting back retorts, rejoinders, and recriminations.
(How’s that for my own 3 Rs of education?)
Do other parents have as much trouble getting that perfect back to school picture like me?
Please God no. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.
So I present to you, you know, in case you need to feel better about your own picture taking prowess:
Literal Mom’s double digit attempt at the perfect back to school shot.
Let’s try again.
Next up, my little friend.
Now for the sister togetherness picture.
And. One. More.
And finally. The no-pressure, this is my favorite picture, picture.
Happily, their first days were way more successful than these pictures. Because that’s the important stuff, right? Picking up kids who are so happy about their first day back?
Yep, that’s the important stuff.
