Mom Gets Mad After Finding Son’s School Photos, But Internet Finds Them Hilarious

No matter how much parents prep their kids before they get their school picture taken, the end result really depends on the child. They can untuck their shirts, mess up their hair, or, in Andrew’s case, start roaring. His loving mom, Stronajai Miles, remembers school pictures being a serious affair, so when she stumbled across her son’s photos, she expected something a little more traditional.

“Andrew is a silly kid with a big personality!” Stronajai told Bored Panda. “He loves to make people laugh and smile and he LOVES the camera! He enjoys making videos on the tablet and he is always camera-ready when it’s time for a picture! He has taken photos in pre-kindergarten and he has taken fall photos which were actually done by Lifetouch School Photography as well and they came out ‘perfect,’ they had him posing traditionally and smiling normally.” This time, however, was different. “I was doing my normal routine, checking his bag and getting his clothes together for the upcoming week,” Stronajai told Bored Panda. “I checked his book bag to make sure I didn’t need to sign anything…” And that’s when she found the pics. “I was totally shocked! Yes, he’s taken pictures like that before – but NEVER for a school picture.”

Stronajai posted her initial annoyance along with the photos on Facebook. The mom even contacted Lifetouch School Photography to figure out what happened and why. But as she was investigating the situation, the pictures started going viral.

People were thanking Andrew for making their day and all of the positive responses started changing Stronajai mind. “They opened my eyes to see that everything doesn’t need to be cookie cutter. Being yourself is even more amazing!” she said. “Knowing that his silly picture brought joy all over the world, how can I continue to be flustered?”

This kid is going places. His smile is very contagious. As a teacher, I can tell you that students are very nervous on picture day. I would love to see a kid goof off a bit and have fun with it. He seems to have a fun personality. He will look at those pictures 20 years from now and smile about it.
