April showers look awfully fluffy and white in Colorado.
So there was a notice about spring school pictures. “Since when do they do pictures more than once?” I asked Ben. “Since whenever they figured they could make more money” he wisely replied. “Well, not from me” I declared, and resolved not to give them money and threw the flyer away.
Then I felt all sad and nostalgic and my babies are growing so fast and I tried to log on to order them later. But alas, I didn’t have the code and their website sucks, so I gave up.
Then Jack gave himself a haircut that week. Then Jack had his other front tooth pulled that week. Then Jack tripped and smacked his head the day before.
Alright, totally not buying pictures. But I kinda wish I could see them. I dutifully dressed him and combed him in case there was a class portrait too, so he would look nice for others.
Fast forward a month and Jack brings this home:
You guys. Wat. Seriously? Have you ever seen such doofy crazy eyes? I’ll zoom in for you.
Seriously? So fabulous.
I swear I didn’t order these. I have no idea why we got them. And it’s not just a couple prints. They sent me a deluxe set.
So please, email me that you want 5×7’s, 4×6’s, wallets, and keychains of this amazing Ode to the Kindergarten Trifecta of Accidents. We’ll keep the puzzle portrait for ourselves.
UPDATE – I logged into LifeTouch and it prompted me to “Order more portraits or pay for portraits I already received.” Looking at the fine print, it appears this is a marketing ploy. I’m supposed to return any unwanted prints to them via the school. I think we will keep the “fun pack” with the puzzle, but return the rest unless someone wants to pay for it themselves.
