Where's My Camera?

How often have you wanted your camera when it was inaccessible?

How often have those moments occurred when you were on the toilet?

No, this isn't going to be a sophmoric essay about massive poo. No, not at all. What captured my desire to have a camera available was a small train that came zooming under the door as I sat "enthroned". It was followed by a small hand I knew to be attached to the larger of the two small people in my home. The moment provided the quintessential image of parenthood - constant, never-ending, unceasing attention. To everything. Coupled with an utter lack of privacy.

Anyway, the scene made me giggle, always a welcome event, and I regretted the lack of photographic equipment.

And, yeah, it's been a while - I'm not interested in dwelling on the matter.

Wow! Welcome back- good to see you in blogworld.

One of Babyman's favorite things is to sit on one side of a closed door and slide things under it so that his brothers will slide them back out again. It's endlessly amusing.

So many times I have experienced moments that were only captured in my mind. For many people the camera in their cell phone will suffice, but I'm not even sure how to get a photo off the dumb thing.

Yeah, I can't get the photos off my phone without a Bluetooth device and who needs another piece of technology?!?
