Hello everybody. Can you believe next week is Holy Week? Lent seemed to be going by so slowly — and all of a sudden, we are reaching the end.
I am currently in the process of building a new website for my husband’s business, so blogging has taken a back seat this week. This post is truly going to live up to the name “Quick Takes”.
I recently was clearing out my camera roll and came across a bunch of funny pictures taken mostly by my kids. I love seeing what interests them — except for when my four year old takes bursts of 50 pictures at a time of things like toilet paper rolls or blurry ceiling shots. I’ve been working to delete all those lately 🙁
Anyway I’m calling this my 7 Quick Takes: Camera Roll Edition. Don’t try to gather any profound truths from this post — there are none to be found. 🙁 Hopefully, they’re good for a laugh or two. On to the Quick Takes:
The World’s Most Unflattering Selfies
One of the things that I love about kids — the more unflattering their picture, the better they seem to like it. Here’s a few I found that must have been from a few years back. They’re funny reminders of what little characters these kids are.
Bad Hair Days
We all have them — bad hair days. My four year old is especially prone to the most amazing nests of knots in her hair. Recently, it got so bad that I finally did some research (thanks Facebook friends), bought some product and a hairbrush, strategically cut out what was beyond salvaging, and finally managed to tame her crazy locks.
Here’s a few of the recent bad hair days and then a shot after all my hard work. I resolve to never go back to those days of out of control dread locks. So far, so good.
Random Pictures of Yummy Food
This is a very sad picture, because I never got to eat that cupcake. I was out with family and instead of eating my dessert with little kids climbing all over me, I decided to put it back in its cute little cellophane bag and save it for later. I prefer to hide away in a corner of my house and eat my desserts child-free — how about you?
Anyway, just as we were getting up, I looked down to see my baby smushing my cupcake — the frosting was stuck to the cellophane bag. 🙁 I still planned to eat it later, but as I walked outside of the store, a homeless man approached me for some money.
I didn’t have money, so I offered him my smushed cupcake instead. Well, he took me up on the offer and so I’ll never know how that cupcake tasted — I bet it was good.
This was the first time my baby saw fireworks. He was absolutely mesmerized by them — though I don’t think he was sure he liked them. It was all very confusing to him. Here’s his first summer fireworks experience.
The Duplo Baby
My son used his little brother as a model for his Duple creation. I think he did a pretty good job.
As I sat down for breakfast the next day, I felt a dark presence in the room with me. I looked up and almost screamed — until I realized it was just the Duplo baby. Phew!
Despite the scare, I love their creativity. I just don’t want to run into that Duplo baby in a dark alley — it’s way creepier in the dark. I’m still having nightmares about it. 🙁
There are just too many baby glamour shots to choose from. One thing is for sure, this baby is adored by everybody! Here’s a few of my recent favorites. Baby’s are the best!
My kids use my phone for their social media posts. So I’m always finding random memes in my camera roll. I just find it so interesting to see what they find funny enough to post for their friends. Anyway, here are a few of them.
Update: If you read this at 1am, you saw the memes. Since then it occurred to me that because I couldn’t cite their original sources, I might be infringing on photo rights. So I had to remove them — believe me, not profound enough to merit being sued. 🙁
Anyway, in their place, I offer you a few creative projects my own kids created during the many hours of driving that happens in our week. Hey, at least they’re doing something productive with all that time. 🙁
This one is an interesting take on old time sitcoms:
Anyway, have a great weekend… and I hope you’re Holy Week is truly beautiful!
