Guilty as charged. I take a couple of pictures of my kids.  I can’t help it.  Am I over the top?  Probably.  Is my house a living shrine to their childhood?  Mind your own business.

I got into video taping for a bit.  It’s fun.  But I never ever look at the videos.  Pictures?  I’ll pull out an old album, pour a glass of wine, and that’s a good night.  By glass 2 I’m tearing up.

Sadly my kids are growing up and slowly revolting against the (semi) constant picture taking.  If I happen to get a good picture now – it’s undercover, behind a bush, while they’re not paying attention.

Don’t they love me? Don’t they know I need to capture all these fleeting moments?

Now I have an excuse.  I have to take pictures for my blog.  My people, my readers, demand it (play along please).

    why do all children seem to do the same pose. Mine does the “perp walk, hand over the face” thing every time I break out the camera too.

    I know it’s hard to break the habit but maybe if you become a local reporter taking pictures for your stories? Or get a 300-500mm lens for the camera then you can catch them unawares from say half a mile away!
