A portrait to be proud of

I’m traumatized when I look back at elementary school pictures of myself.  The biggest problem was my hair.  I don’t know what my mom was thinking.  I’m not sure how the, “Dorothy Hammil” hairstyle was a good look for me?  My hair looked like a mushroom on my head.  Then there was the one time that my dad cut my bangs the night before school pictures.  Let’s just say that they were not straight across and it was very noticeable.

Angry Husband brought home the CD from Angry Kid’s school pictures this morning and I was pleasantly surprised.  I may have jumped for joy.  Because they are great.  He has been doing this cheesy smile where his eyes crinkle up and get squinty. A think this is a great start to school photos.  And we bought the CD because we have printing rights, and we mostly send things out digitally.

Great picture!! We bought the CD this year too. I thought it would be nice to have in the Christmas card. And I have to admit I was a little shocked that ours turned out so well too. Last year we did the re-takes.

Cute cute cute! I always do a double take when I see a pic of him since he and P look so much alike!

We got T's kindergarten pics back last week. I was so afraid it would be the big- B I G - smile with no eyes. I told him at least a dozen times on picture day "make sure you can SEE the person taking the pictures when you smile". I was pleasantly surprised. I also had the Dorothy Hamill hair cut (Seriously with curly hair?!?!) but that is by far NOT my worst picture. I've thought of sending some in to TV show Ellen, but don't want to relive the trauma. LOL

That is a GREAT pic! I can't believe you posted this today. I picked up Sadie from school today and the teachers told me she didn't smile for school pictures. I was totally annoyed. Granted she is 3 year old preschool, but still. What the hell am I paying you for?? Make her smile damnit! At least I will save $ on not purchasing any.

Love this picture... his brown eyes captivate me. Cute! And how fun would it be to have a this is my worst elementary school pic day. Maybe I'll do a Wordless Wednesday with it sometime. The Dorothy Hamill hair pic for me was NOT the worst. :)

Dude, my mom used to try to force the Dorothy Hamill hairstyle on me. She though it was so cute. Gag.

He looks great! We had a mix-up on school pictures this year and we were suppose to do retakes but we had another mix-up with retakes so I guess we're getting them anyway... You're off to a great start...

GREAT pic! Totally Jedi, if you ask me. We just got Fury's 3rd grade pics this week and my first remark was "jeez, that kid is way better looking than I was in 3rd grade!"
