“This is my pre-school picture. I had a fit and would not get my picture taken unless I could put my belt on my head. So my mom did what she had to do.”

this is my alltime favorite pic
I thought it was funny when my son demanded that he wear a 3-piece suit in his Pre-K picture but this is hilarious!! I agree – an updated picture needs to be taken.
Ack! I meant eXXodus, not Laur. So sorry, Laur…my bad. Where’s autocorrect when you really need it!
LMAO! I have three-year old twin girls, and they pull this all the time! Lately it’s been insisting on wearing receiving blankets off their shoulders as capes (that MUST touch the ground at all times) everywhere, lol. I blame Frozen.
OMG. I cannot stop laughing at photo and caption. This one is a hall of famer.
my alltime favorite pic – a super cute little man with a will of his own! He probably wanted to have his new belt in the pic too and his Mom said: it won´t be visible – and then he decided to sure make it visible
This is precious. As a portrait photographer I see moms matching their kids’ fits every day. The pictures suck, the experience sucks. This mom is a rockstar and I bet she gets a smile every time she sees this photo.
I love the shirt!
What I love the most is his expression. It says ‘See how good the belt looks? My tantrum was justified.’
A recreation is definitely required.
That’s a great description of the expression! Had me laughing even more at the picture.
AGREE! What a perfect description!
Recreation please!!!! Yes, the best moms laugh & roll with the punches. If it is not life or death, it is no big deal.
Your mom must have given in to the fit pretty quickly. Those chubby cheeks do not appear to be tear-stained in the least.
You are not only adorable – you also have an awesome mom.
I’d like to know why Mike thought puting a belt on his
head was a cool idea. I actually kinda dig it.
I wonder if this adorable kid grew up to be a
hair accessories designer.
I too, had a cool mom. In kindergarten for a
whole year she let me wear my halloween witch cape
to school every day. (This was in the ’70s and it
had orange bric-a-brac trim).
He did not. Though his awesome taste in accessories has been passed down to his adorable kids!
What a doll
A remake would be awesome!
Well belt or no, that is one cute little boy.
You should absolutely Recreate the Awkwardness with this photo!
I agree!!!! Would love to see this recreated! HEY EVERYBODY LETS GIVE MIKE SOME ENCOURAGEMENT!!
Yes yes yes – and if he refuses I will throw a tantrum until he does; )
Your Mom is all kinds of awesome! She let you wear a belt on your head and wear a super cool Star Wars tee too!
My third child insisted on something similar for his kindergarten picture. Now we enjoy laughing at Bryce’s choice of Halloween costume Ninja shirt (it had a cobra!) as his first official school photo. I say you let the third kid (and others after him/her) juggle knives if they want to, you’ve learned the hard way on the first two that it just doesn’t matter.
Kind of reminds me when my son was in preschool and would only shop at Target with Scooby Doo underwear on his head. Please, please do a remake of this photo – that would be too funny!
Do you have a photo of this???? that would be amazing. My brother went everywhere with an enormous hockey helmet on his head for the first 4 years of his life. It was about twice the size of his head and he decorated it with stars and explosions. He even slept with it on. He wouldn’t take a bath without it on….he didn’t need it, but people thought he did.
When my son was 4 he went everywhere with a black glove on his hand because that’s what Luke Skywalker had on his hand after it was cut off by Darth Vader. Kids this age have great imaginations but are also really stubborn!
That is hilarious! For about 6 months this year, my son wouldn’t go to the park to play unless he was in full Batman gear. The rest of the time he had to be wearing his cape shirt. I pick my battles, so I went with it. Our day at the park was interesting the day a school did a pirate-themed field trip there…I don’t really know the full story there, but about 40 kids in full pirate costumes, some very elaborate, were captured and jailed by my pint-sized super hero.
My coworker’s son wants to go everywhere dressed as a Power Ranger. I love this age.
First, this picture and explanation cracked me up. I can see my 3 year old son doing something like this but then I read the other stories of sons and their determined way of dressing and it cracked me up even more. I’m doing this at work and trying to stifle my laughter but am not being very sucessful. Gotta love boys!
Wow, and here I was thinking that parents ran the household..
EXXodus: one day, if you’re lucky, you’ll find out that being a perfect parent is not worth the blood on the floor.
Amen Sheesh, Amen!
Fresh air and sunshine are highly underrated mood enhancers, Laur. You should go get some.
eXXodus, I hope you were kidding.
You must not have any kids. Parents do run things, but it’s also known what battles to fight and which ones to let go. It’s not like the boy was harming himself or anyone.
