This wind is starting to get on my nerves. It doesn’t care that I’m trying to get my kids looking dapper for picture day. The wind is not a mother’s friend on picture day. With gusts up to 50 km/h around noon, there is no hope for a decent photo with hair to impress.

Yes, I ironed the button-down shirt child 2 insisted on wearing because he wanted to look fancy. I took them for fresh haircuts to start the school year in style. I will attempt to tame the tresses and cowlicks. But why? Just so they can walk into the field and have it blown to pieces in 1 mighty gust.

It’s the ritual of picture day. Plan for the best but prepare for the worst. I’m crossing my fingers the photos will turn out nicely but at least there is always photo retake day if they don’t.
