I've gotta admit, as parents to three children Ange and I occasionally miss stuff.
Usually it's Trot, but that is only because he won't sit still for more than 5 seconds at a time. Every now and then Ciera will go into panic mode because we forgot it was hat day or something and yeah; Trot has ventured off to pre-school more than once while going Commando but if he's not complaining? I'm sure not checking to see if he's got his underoos on.
Bottom line? We make mistakes like everyone else. Like Ange letting Rakes and Trot watch LOST the other day when Desmond ran over Ben or when I let Ciera watch "WWE Raw" and now she wants to marry John Cena or that time I said the mother of all curse words after almost cutting off my pointer finger on Christmas Day...... Forget that one. I'm still pretending it didn't happen.
All that being said, we somehow didn't realize when Picture Day for the Kindergarten class was.
'Cause if she'd known he was getting his FIRST EVER PICTURE taken at school I'm pretty sure Ange wouldn't have allowed the following to happen.
There is my first born son, wearing the rattiest hoodie he owns with a split lip courtesy of a right hook by Trot and his hair looking like he's channeling his inner Kramer.
With every fiber of my being I wish I'd had the video camera working when he tried to convince his Mom that the pictures looked GREAT.
If the Red Sox would actually win a game sometime soon this would all seem a little bit funnier.
