Last week, Louise’s day care sent home a piece of paper proclaiming that Wednesday was PICTURE DAY! And to sign up for photos. I was unreasonably excited – I think anyone can admit little tykes in the school picture format are just the cutest things. I was so excited I ran out and bought her a dress just for the occasion. Mike started protesting when he heard how much it cost but I reminded him that’s why I have a shopping budget…so he backed off. =)
The morning of picture day we dressed her up, stuck a bow in her hair and of course let her wear her bracelets. We were fancified and ready to rock.
We get to day care and nobody is in our room. After wandering around for a few minutes, I learn that Ms. Delois has taken two of the kids to get their photos taken, so we head over. Louise is a little disoriented with the change in process and decides she does not want her picture taken, she wants to cling on to me instead. No worries, I leave and assume she’ll take the picture later when I’m not around.
I pick her up that evening and learn that she was not interested in having her picture taken, period. Ms. Trisa said “there’s always next year.” I was pretty bummed but I understood…they’re not going to work for an hour to try to get one kid smiling. Louise…miss bossy boots as usual.
Mike saw the pics I took above and commented that she’s looking more and more like me. That caused us to look back at our baby pics and compare. I still think she’s a pretty strong blend – my eyes/eyebrows and his cheeks/mouth/chin.
