I've decided that taking school photos must be the job to have. The prices they charge for school photos is insane and more often than not we end up with a terrible photo of the boys posing with this fake, horrible smile on their face. This year we have three boys to get school photos taken of with Harri being in Kinder. Luckily the third child in the family gets a discount with their photos being half price.
This year I made a decision to not waste my money and pay for Noah to have an individual photo taken. At first I felt really bad about it, but I would much prefer to just get a photo of him with his class. Every photo that we have of Noah taken at school looks so awful. They always get him looking totally dopey, and last year they were so bad I didn't even give any out to anyone in the family!
Today wasn't actually Noah's day at Punchbowl, but I took him up to have his photo taken with his class. We had to wait for half an hour, so we did his usual routine while he is at school and gave him his neb while his class were out at daily P.E.
Jalen was walking past and spotted us in the classroom. I told him I caught him wagging class, but he insists he was just on the way to the loo.
The best thing ever was that Noah was actually awake for his class photo!!! He has been really sleepy lately. I think it's because he is having so many seizures every day again and is a bit postictal, so I was expecting him to be asleep like he was in last years class photo.
It's amazing how different things can be when you have a child with a disability. You aren't hoping that their hair looks good in the photo or that they smile nicely. You are happy just to have a photo of them awake!
