I love this blog. I love writing and recording all the happenings in a day in our life. I take hundreds of pictures. Mostly, I post the cleaned up perfect pictures of a days activities. Today, I want to show some behind the scenes with my special helper. He is always there to help me while I am taking pictures, cooking, cleaning, and every other activity that comes with the day. This particular day made me smile. This was the day I took pictures for my latest “Great Thrift” posting.
I took down the platter from the top of the cupboard and set it up on the table. Of course, with a tug at my leg, I hear “whatcha doin’ mum mum?” “I am taking pictures for the blog.” to which my little one responds “I want to take pictures too!” His little feet patter against the floor quickly as he runs to the livingroom to get his camera.
In a few seconds he returns exclaiming “I’m ready now Mum mum!” He climbs up on the chair and we take pictures of the platter. He took this job very seriously. We talked about the platter, what colors he saw, what shapes, what his favorite part was. It just makes me smile to think of it.
He often joins me now in taking pictures. He use to use one of our very old and outdated digital point and shoots. But for Christmas we got him a kid friendly camera with the money sent by his Great Grandma Baker. He is in LOVE with this camera.
So what shots did he get on this day? The resolution on the camera isn’t that good, but it’s okay. It’s more the act of taking the pictures that is more fun. He always seems to get good shots anyhow…
We took pictures of each other at the same time (always a fun trick!)
And a self portrait…
It’s the little things like this make me smile. It’s all about the everyday things and focusing on the good in the day that keeps us sane. Any simple “behind the scenes” experiences you would like to share this week?
