15 Relatable Tweets About the Joys of School Picture Day

School picture day is my favorite day to write about a check and having zero idea what the hell I'm paying for. But at least we get some sweet pot-holders with our kid's faces on them out of the deal, right?

School picture day is my favorite day for writing out a check and not really knowing what I’m paying for. I mean, you can’t beat that moment of surprise when your 3rd grader brings home his packet a month later and you find out that the pictures were post-lunch and post-recess so he’s grinning from ear to ear with a ketchup blob on his shirt and sweaty hair sticking up on the left side. Best $50 you ever spent. Can’t wait to send those suckers to Grandma.

If you’re like me, you probably order a far bigger package than you’ll ever need. 18 wallets? Sure. Do you know 18 people who want a picture of your kid? Nope. Magnet for the fridge AND a mug? Yes. So it’s $75. You can’t put a price on capturing these moments (even though you have 892 pics of that same child on your iPhone. NOT an excuse. YOU MUST HAVE A MUG WITH YOUR KID’S FACE ON IT OR YOU’RE NOT A MOTHER.)

So here are 15 relatable tweets about the never over-priced and always-a-sound-investment experience of school picture day.

Has your kid had school picture day yet? If not, there’s still time to buy a super cute pair of khakis he won’t be able to unbutton in the bathroom and a collared shirt for him to spill BBQ sauce on, so get shopping! And you might as well warn the grandparents that some pot-holders with your kids’ faces on them are coming their way this holiday season.
