YANBU - by the time DS is older if you indulge with every photo opportunity you'll need an extension to store all the photos. I have stopped buying DS's school photos (individual and class ones) - he doesnt look any different from the one I did buy in year 2 and I refuse to waste my money........
Mind you, it took me till year 3 to be in that mindset so I prob would have bought the graduation pic...but I am an idiot, lol
Actually, when DS was in nursery photographers came round and dressed the kids up as evacuees so DS was in a silly cap and everything..i didnt buy that one!
I think that's awful. People work long and hard to graduate university and the cap and gown photo is very special.
I don't agree that it's fun, it's just taking something that should be earned and is typical of the way society is going with people not wanting to work for anything. I know this may sound over the top as it's 4 year olds dressing up but I really feel it's wrong.
