8 year old + camera

At least once a week I pick up my phone and find mystery pictures.  I am not one of those gals that carries her phone around constantly.  Shocking as it may seem, there are several moments in a day when I leave it on a table and…..get this….walk away.  On the weekends (gasp!),  I may not touch it all day. I’m nuts.

Here’s what I found this morning…


The scary thing about the photo above is that he must have had to reach into my bag, dig to find the phone, take the shot, and then quickly put it back.

He’s meant for a life of crime. I just know it.

We take Hangman very seriously in this house – or in a restaurant.

Yes, we were as loud as our words look on that paper.

Once in a blue moon, or afternoon rainbow – I find beautiful happy shots.

He’s crazy. But who is crazier?  The kid that takes all the freaky pictures…or the mom that keeps them all?

    I would keep them all too. Santa brought Ally a camera for Christmas this year. A real, digital, kids’ camera; and I have a folder on my desktop with all of her pictures in it. Some are terribly blurry or off screen, but she’s 3 and I think they’re precious. A select few are really good though…I’ll have to watch out for this one!

    Mine do that too! They also do it on the iPad, and make videos. On the iPad, they use the effects so I end up with really funky looking shots. Totally keep them!

    I’m sensing a cross between Ansel Andams & John Dillinger!….Be patient and let’s see what evolves!

    When I was about the same age as your son, my mom thought it would be a great idea to get my sisters and me tape recorders. (The old, old school kind from the early/mid-80’s – pre-boom box even). I think she just about had a heart attack when she realized we were tape recording her gossiping with my Grandma. . .And when she found out we were tape-recording the neighbors arguing. (It was a very small town). LOL!

    Gotta love technology.

    I’d keep every photo too!
