sometimes things turn out okay

Let me tell you about this picture: I had forgotten all about picture day until right AFTER I put him on the bus. I had sent him off wearing both a knit cap and a faded shirt that was more than a little gnawed on. A laundry day kind of shirt. I hadn't even packed a hairbrush. Oh well, I thought, at least I can ask for re-takes.

But the picture turned out great. He doesn't have major hat hair. Even the shirt looks pretty good.

And really, who cares about anything else when you have that great smile to look at?

Not me!


  1. I'm a new reader of your blog. I also live in MN and have ASD identical twin boys (in first grade). Anyway, this picture is just PERFECT! My friend also blogged about the school pic issue awhile back: http://kormanfive.blogspot.com/search/label/school%20pictures. I look forward to reading more of your posts!

  2. The funny this is at home it can be hard at times to get a decent photo of him because he keeps looking away. So far for school he has been looking a the camera and smilling like a pro!
