Pre-school pics

There are some things in life that you are obligated to buy, even though you know they are a little bit of a racket. The coupon book from the girl next door to support her school. Kitchen gadgets at the Pampered Chef party your friend is hosting. Pre-school pictures of your first child (I think by the time I get to the third or fourth I won't be so sentimental) fall into this category. You know $20 is ridiculous, but how can you say no. And then when her eyes are open, her smile is cute and her clothes are clean you are happy you said yes.



*By the way, none of you have entered my giveaway. You don't have to go to our office to participate. Just comment about our blog or how great Dr. Packer is :)

I love it! So glad you got them. And what cute leg warmers!

The reason you'll buy you're 3rd or 4th kid's preschool pics is because those probably will be the only pictures you have of that child, just kidding, but how can you resist. Especially if there is a nautical theme :) What is she holding?

Such a cute picture! Do you have her in preschool already? I wanted to get Rome into one, but the public preschool said it was only by need and I don't think he qualifies. He knows all of his letters and can count to 16. I might have to look for a different one because I think he needs the social interaction. (and I thought about entering your giveaway, but would feel bad if I won over your other loyal patients) Wow, that was long.

Thayer: I'm not sure what she's holding. Coconut bowl?

Jocie: It's not a true pre-school. It's called Mother's Morning Out and is for 18m-3y. It's more of an extended nursery. They do crafts, sing songs, read stories, have a snack, and do free play. I do it completely for her social interaction. She loves it!

I commented. (And, I spoke honestly.)

Also, I buy every photo opportunity, because some of my favorite pictures are ones from things like this--even the "bad" ones have their charm.

Oh and she is holding a buoy, like the ones on ground. Silly people.

That's a way cute picture- you couldn't pass that up and feel good about yourself as a mother! :) I bought Nate's first pre-school pic and it's just him holding a soccer ball. This one's way cuter- although I'm curious why they came up with a nautical theme!

I commented on your work blog because you are the BEST! We certainly receive wonderful care, as do all your patients, but it's probably not fair for someone to win who gets house calls! Ella is a doll! You'll love having the preschool pictures, if only for the fact that it is so fleeting.
