Recognitions/celebrations/graduations are a little depressing. Particularly for 6th and 8th graders.
Here's what I think:
--8th grade girls that take the opportunity to dress like prostitutes and their parents that gleefully take their pictures are depressing
--"certificates of completion" are depressing
--14 year old girls trying to walk in 4 inch stiletto heels are depressing
--awards for 100% attendance are depressing...there's something really sad about never missing school
--sitting next to Mark (a.k.a. the most miserable child in America) at a school event is depressing:
He had to empty the dishwasher when we got home because he was so cranky.
Speaking of pictures, the shots I got of Emma were also depressing.
They mostly looked like this:
But there were also lovely one's like this:
|do you see her?|
I should be a professional photographer.
Now I'm going to go empty the dishwasher for being so cranky.
