When the school sent home a note saying picture day was coming up, I scoffed.
I doubted my boys would sufficiently ham it up for school pics. I can never get them to sit still or even look at the camera when I want to take a picture of them. I imagined them looking goofy or irritated or with closed eyes or something.
So I opted to get a a tiny, tiny package of the two of them together and one individual photo/class picture combo.
Look at how great my boys did:
Look at those smiles and happy eyes! Aren't they the handsomest?? And so grown up. Ugh! I can't stand it. Now, I'm annoyed that I didn't get photos of them individually. As a twins Mom, this is an epic, epic fail. Booooo to me.
Who knew school pics could be actually cute?? Oh well. Live and learn.
And just for their sake -- for years from now when they're grown up and want to stroll down memory lane -- here's their class picture, with the names of their friends and teachers.
Mackenzie, Dean, Penelope, Onyekachukwu, Esko, Graziella, Autumn, Cary, Janiyah
(Missing: Yusef, Olivia )
P.S. Today, on my way out, Mrs. Toni said "You have some really sweet boys. You really do. You're doing a good job, Mom."
And I decided then and there, I like Mrs. Toni after all. :-)
So I said: "And so are you, Mrs. Toni. So are you."
