I love seeing all the sweet back-to-school photos of kids in their best outfits, shiny new shoes, and backpacks ready to conquer the world. But, when I ran across Zach's kids' photos in my Facebook newsfeed, I almost spit out my coffee.

Zach has a bit of a critter problem at his house and this is his official “trash panda hunter” get-up. He seized the opportunity to wear it to mortify his kids because in his words, “I try to embarrass them as much as I can!”
