All In Our Places With Bright Shiny Faces

September 28, 2013

Last week Annie had a check-up.  We saw a new doctor who asked, “So is this your first baby.”  When I told her it was my fourth she blurted out, “I had no idea…you look so clean!”

All these people are in school!  Some more than others, but I’ll take what I can get.  I love September and I love school pictures. All the toil of the last five years, the lack of sleep the loads of laundry, the crying, crYING, CRYING, just fade away when I look at school pictures. Regardless of whether or not they were being educated, I think I would drive them to school for a year just to get school pictures.

Now my school picture is a different story:

school pics 133

I’m just not sure I can keep working in schools if they keep making me take a school picture.  And school staff get the privilege of a very large complimentary package of pictures.  I guess I could imagine an elementary teacher giving a little picture of herself to her students.  But what is the counselor supposed to do with thirty pictures of myself? Say: “I’m so sorry your child is struggling.  Here, have one of my pictures!”

If you want one of my pictures, please respond in the comments, but remember, I only have thirty…

    They are all so cute, so smart. Your picture is a good one, too. How “grinny” you look! These are the good days. Enjoy every one.

    I think all the staff at HIH hate their school pictures. Me too.
