So the schools do this tricky thing to parents now-a-days! They do SPRING school photos. The kicker? You don't have to pay for the photos before they are taken, like you have to when they take fall photos. You wait to pay until after you see the photos. And this is bad this year because ... LOOK AT THESE CUTE KIDS!!!
Gosh darnit CUTE KIDS!!! The photo packages are EXPENSIVE!! To purchase all five sheets of photos for each kid, which of course I want ALL FIVE because they are super cute and they have their names on them and their school year and there's a sheet of laminated photos too! GAAAAH! It's $44 for each kid. Pretty darn sure I'll be spending almost $100 on school portraits. AGAIN! Because I already bought and framed their fall photos!
Trickery. Just plain trickery. I told the girls that next year they shouldn't look so darn cute because then I wouldn't want to buy the photos. They told me that's just not possible.
