I usually never buy school pictures because I hate to pay that much money.
This year since I am an employee I get them half price. I can live with that. I ordered Em's. The next day it was Ab's turn, and since she usually wears uniforms, she got to wear civilian clothes for the big day. I dressed her in a cute pair of jeans and a nice shirt which had a hood. The morning of, her sister threw a brush at her and Abs was left with a huge bruise on the top of her forehead along to her temple. I get an ice pack and we were on our way.
After school I asked Abs how the picture taking went and she told me that it was fine. I had fixed her hair in the morning, but she was wearing it in a mess of a ponytail by the time I got to her. She assured me that it didn't matter though since she wore her hood. Her hood???? So now I will have a hundred copies (not really) of Abs with a hood on and a giant bruise. I'm sure that her kids will love to hear this story one day.
