FYI

Dear daycare,

Thanks for sending home a laminated memento of Pirate Day held at daycare yesterday. Great idea…execution? Not so great. You might want to think about how the kid actually looks before sending home to a mother who already feels guilt ridden about the fact that she enjoys the break from her kids, and the ever constant worry/guilt said mother feels about her child being away from her.

Shots like these just make her feel like a complete ARSEHOLE. I mean really. Really? She looks TERRIBLE! Like she has been on a 14 day bender with no sleep and has been weeping for hours. HOURS!

I do appreciate the care you take with my child….but….really? REALLY?!

Just sayin’.

Yours sincerely,
Beth

    Now, you know that I think that Harper is the most beautiful baby in the world, but those photos! Seriously, the only way they could have been any worse was if they’d have a prisoner day and dressed the babies in stripes and put them behind bars.

    Goodness!

    I agree though, flash is NO ONE’S friend…

    On a side note, I love the little kid in the background in the 2nd photo, haha.

    Harper is too cute hun.

    I hate these photos. Hate them. I hate posed photos, they are my biggest pet hate. Especially of babies, just because it is a “day” and they need a photo of each child. Absolute BS.

    She looks so cranky. Can they not get a photo of her smiling at the least?

    Sorry – this is a big pet hate of mine.
