school picture day.

so, the paloma is taking her first preschool class (and individual) picture tomorrow. and i've done everything in my power (ok, save for a haircut.) to assure that she doesn't come home with a picture like this:

thank goodness a) she has perfect eyesight b) cystic hygroma isn't genetic c) her grandmother doesn't sew.

You looked so cute and sweet!

I know I've been there, it's so stressful for their very first school picture, I'm sure the Paloma will look absolutely gorgeous.

In my son's first photo, he looked a little like a deer caught in the headlights, no smile, just looked nervous, it was still a sweet picture that I will treasure...I'm just a big softie.

angela - thanks! :) my husband said, "hey, it's sally jessie!" so, i may have to pull out some of his photos.

well, she got off to school ok. i don't think her hair will look nearly as nice as it did this morning... her practice smile wasn't so bad... we shall see. :)

Oh. My. God. You went to Avondale? I teach at the middle school across the parking lot from it.

What a small world! Email me, if you can.

"hey there!
