I go all 'mama duck' on my students, making sure every hair is in the right place, breakfast remnants are wiped off of their faces, bows on their dresses are properly tied and the collars on their shirts aren't all wonky and crooked.
I actually get a little misty-eyed watching as they awkwardly try and position their feet, tilt their chins this way, and then a little more that way while turning the other way. :) I imagine how happy their parents will be when they see these precious photos of their little ones.
Yes, I get a little sappy. And they're not even my kids.
But these are.....
It's like they know how hard I worked to become a mom, how hard I worked to carry these three babies to 'term', how hard I love these people who call me 'mom'. They know I'm gonna be all misty eyed when I see all 10 sheets (well, 40 between all 4 packages) of my littles' sweet faces. They let me fall in love with them, and then casually mention, "Just send back any sheets you don't want."
Send them back? But they're already printed! And they're my kids!! If I send them back, what will you do with them? No, I need them. Well, I want them. I have to have them.
So I did. Get them. All...of them.
So you should really look at them. :) My official Preschoolers!
