I am no photographer, but I am a photo junkie. When there's something I think I might want to remember I'll snap a picture of it. Digital cameras are wonderful inventions, especially for us crazy sentimental types who don't want to forget anything. What were things like back when you had to buy film and only had a very limited number of shots to take? I don't remember, but I'm pretty sure people cried a lot more in those days.
Sometimes I find things around the house Grace has done that I can't help but smile at. Silly little things that only a small child would do, and things that I don't want to forget. They're only tiny pieces of her childhood, but I want to hold on to them anyway. So I take pictures. It's fun to look back on the some of the things her young imagination led her to do. I suppose I am a bit of a memory hoarder. Oh well.
Sometimes these little surprises make me proud.
But usually they just make me laugh.
|Elmo got hungry.|
|Off to find Giraffe a neck brace.|
|Barbie Boot Camp|
|"I haven't seen my shoes in months, have you?"|
|Baby taking a bath with her bath toys.|
|No, the girl isn't obsessed with clothes at all.|
Sometimes I'm not very happy about the things I find.
But at least I don't find things like this anymore:
Trust me, I have come across much worse things than what was in these last two pictures. But in those cases I was too busy with my tears and [insert your pick of cleaning supply] to take pictures.
And of course, sometimes Grace is actually part of the surprise.
Hope you come across something unexpected that makes you smile today!
