A Few of His Favorite Things

My three-year-old son has learned to use our digital camera.  E has taken some wonderful pictures (655 and counting).  He is really pushing the boundaries of photography.  And my sanity.

This is from a moving series of pictures of his feet as he walks from the kitchen to the sunroom. AND BACK.

I’m pleased that his sister continues to make his list of favored subjects; although, perhaps he believe that the camera takes away the soul. (He’s having some regression issues this month.)

His mess, which allows us to document how little we actually clean up over here.

And me.  Getting caught playing on my iPhone.  Not once.

Not twice.

But a totally of three times in three separate photo shoots.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, his photo series, “Mama in Sweats,” is rounded out by our model giving the LOOK.  (Not quite Blue Steel.  Perhaps more like Purple Save Me.  Because it was only 10 o’clock and our roof was being repaired.)


What day is complete without being reminded how human we are.

She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Oh this brought tears of HILARITY to my eyes. The last one of you in the “When will it all stop?!” pose is priceless. This makes my snotty-nosed-blowing-icky-day so much happier. 😉

  2. Jane took some amazing super close-ups. (My pregnant belly was my favorite) And lots of moving picures — whoosh goes the world. Ouch say my eyes. But the pride on her face is priceless.
