I, too, used to scoff at these sorts of Smug Mummy photos, just as I smirked at parents referring to their wee ones attending so-called "school". "Oh, really?" I'd think to myself, "Your two-year-old is going to 'school', huh - how's that pre-calc class going? Ready for the SATs yet?"
Here's the thing: it's my blog. And I'll post first day of nursery school photos / flagrantly contradict myself if I want to. Neener neener neener.
Please note that I'd lovingly picked out a more photo-friendly, smocked outfit for Master P to wear for his first day - only to get loudly vetoed by both men of the house. Friends, there are toddler hills to die on, and I decided - very begrudgingly - that this one wasn't it. At least his shoes are fun?
I also ashamedly confess that I did not cry at the school drop-off, which ranks as high heresy in my corner of Yuppie Momdom. In my defense, I absolutely LOVED school as a child, so I really was more excited for my wee CEO than sad for myself. In related news - once a geek, always a geek.
