Mom Goes Viral For Daughter’s Hilarious School Picture Fail

Sometimes, you just don’t pay attention when your kids get dressed for school. Things are hectic in the morning, and it’s easy to grab the first thing you see. In the case of Paige Ward’s two-year-old daughter Emma, that happened to be a T-shirt with cheeky message that ended up going viral.

Ward, who works at an urgent care clinic—sometimes for 60 hours a week—was understandably wiped out from her job. So when she woke up to get Emma ready for school, she wasn’t thinking about fashion. 

“I woke up that morning exhausted and grabbed the first thing out of her closet I could see, which happened to be the famous ‘sasshole’ shirt,” Ward told Buzzfeed

The shirt was a gift from Ward’s friend, who made it to showcase Emma’s sassy and fun personality. When they arrived at school, Ward said her fiancé noticed some camera equipment outside the school and thought it might be picture day. Ward said she hadn’t been notified so it was probably for something else. However, two days later, Emma’s dad dropped her off at home along with the photo proofs. Indeed, it was picture day.

Ward saw the photos and freaked out, saying she was “hysterical.” She said she thought, Oh my god. Everyone is going to think I’m a horrible mother. How could I do this?

“But the entire time I was dying laughing because it just fits Emma’s personality and 2020 so well.”

Ward decided to have fun with the “sasshole” incident and posted about it on TikTok, where it went viral. Folks loved the mix-up and many moms could relate. 

Some people had no sense of humor and said the T-shirt was not appropriate to even own, but Ward also responded to those people with another TikTok video.
