What Not to Wear on School Picture Day!

Is it important to send your kids to school on picture day
worrying about what they are wearing below the waist??
No why would you worry about that?

The morning conversation with your child would go something like this:

Child: walks out with his favorite t-shirt on (black with the hulk body painted on it.)
Mom: You can't wear that for pictures today. Go change.
Child: "but mom..."
Mom: no go put on a nice shirt.
Child: Ok but I am not changing my pants.
Mom: thats fine but go put on your polo shirt.
Child: comes down stairs with a blue polo and matching colored basketball shorts.
Mom: You should put jeans on.
Child: but mom I changed my shirt.
Dad: he did change his shirt and at least he Matches.
Mom: Fine at least its just a class picture and you will only see from the waist up.

Maybe I should have stood my ground. I don't know what do you think?

Since when did they start doing full body shots?

I think he looks adorable. I think you were wise in picking your battles on this one.

I agree with tonya--he does look adorable. (You usually don't get that full shot until their Senior Pictures???)

Hilarious! Isn't that always the way? I forgot my daughter had her "PRESCHOOL graduation pictures" ?? and sent her with her hair in ponytails, which of course causes problems with the graduation cap. Why are preschoolers wearing graduation caps?

That is awesome. You are nicer than me, I pretty much tell Mollie what to wear before she gets dressed.
