Where is Mommy's Camera?

Mommy: Where's my camera?

Sarah: Tee hee hee. I don't know. Tee hee hee.

Mommy panics and begins to search for the sound of the little giggling voice.

Mommy: Get down here right this minute young lady and give me my camera before you break it! I don't want to have to tell your father about this when he gets home!

Mommy hates it when she sounds like a 1950's sitcom housewife.

Mommy likes the blurry, shot-from-above, head-removed photo of herself.

Mommy begins to wonder if the family Christmas card picture could be shot this way.

Mommy sighs and decides she needs another cup of coffee.

My daughter is always getting my camera & making "movies" with her stuffed animals. Drives me nuts!
Glad to know I'm not alone.

Have a great weekend!

Love it!

I have a similar collection of blurry parts of me taken by Abby.

Hahaha! That technique would make Christmas card pictures so much easier to take... Hm. Maybe you have the next Annie Lebowitz on your hands!

My Goodness said...

Very funny! :)
My daughter LOVES to be turned loose with my camera...it's fun to see what she thinks is worthy of photographing.

Consider yourself, without your head, worthy!

Love the finger pointing "Get down here!" pose! That is a priceless pic. Maybe it is time for her to have her own camera. For Christmas? Some of the best pictures we have are ones our boys have taken.

What a cute post! I'm glad you found your camera - I know I'd be frazzled until I found mine!

Have a good day - Kellan

Very nice shot! My big threat now is "I'm going to send you all to camp!" but I think they know the deadlines are past.

Giggling at that fact she cut your head off. You have to love her fondness for photograph.

Funny. I think I sound like a 50's sitcom mama too.

My kids usually take my camera behind my back and I don't even know it's missing until I need it for an event and when I locate it and turn it on, guess what? The battery is dead. Hard to believe isn't it?
