Bad Picture


Here's Tommy's school picture for his PPCD class. I scanned it from the black-and-white proof the school gave me, so that's why the quality is so bad. I completely forgot that it was picture day,and I let Tommy pick out his shirt. He chose a plain ash-colored shirt. I also didn't comb his hair that morning, either. We got to school and his teacher took one look at him and said "Um, did you remember it was school picture day?" Of course I would have, had I not stayed up almost the entire night before with Eddie, but I didn't. Pictures, for some insane reason, were to be taken AFTER snack time, and, of course, Tommy spilled water all down the front of his shirt durning snack time! He has a set of clean clothes in the classroom for accidents just like this, but did the teacher think about that? No. She decided to turn his shirt around backwards for his picture! His hair is also sticking up weird in the back so it looks like he has an awfully mis-shaped head! His face is cute, but everything else is all wrong! Sigh...I hate to say it, but he certainly LOOKS developmentally delayed in this picture!

Probably because of the picture, combined with your description, made me laugh so hard -- but I had to keep it in because I'm at work. Uhm, do they do retakes??????

He doesn't look developmentally delayed... he looks like a BOY!!! (a cutie patootie boy at that!)

Look on the bright side... you have a great story to tell him :)

He does NOT! That's very funny though!

Well, consider it just a candid shot of his real life! Besides, it's not really that bad. And aren't school photos kind of like driver's license pictures?!
