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,


  1. blame the flash! truly, who uses flash, it makes us all look awful…

  2. 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.

    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.


  4. Oh sheeeeesh. I hear what you’re saying there…

  5. C-L-A-S-S-I-C! x

  6. 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.
