I love having a digital camera — it has become a staple in my life. If the kids make a funny face or do something really great, I yell, “FREEZE!”, as I frantically try to find the camera to take the “candid” shot.
My kids often hear:
“Do that again!”…. “No, not THAT. The thing you were doing a minute ago!”
“Hug your brother one more time.”…. “Don’t strangle him! Hug him!”
“Get a little closer…a little closer.”…. “Don’t sit on him!”
I am sure that the kids love picture time, despite their obvious rebellion to it. Maybe, if I was a bit faster, or always knew where my camera was, it would be better.
For now, however, all of those “candid” shots will have to wait. My camera is broken. I miss it so much! I miss paying the kids a quarter to find it. I miss hearing the kids whine, “He’s sitting on my foot!” I miss trying to make everyone look the same way, or smile at the same time.
I just want a new camera!! Does anyone know someone who sells them? I mean…besides my husband. (The plumber’s wife never has a working toilet. I am thankful that MY husband sells electronics.)
Until next time,
