I'm my Kids' Papparazzi

I admit it, I’m the paparazzi. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not hiding in bushes and jumping out all obnoxious paparazzi style, but thanks to my trusty iPhone, I’m always taking pictures of my kids.

I capture the important moments, the silly moments and the daily grind of life that seems to pass by with increasing speed.

Take a minute and think about how lucky we are to have the ability to capture these moments with our kids so easily.

We can take a picture, edit it into a little masterpiece, add a quick thought or a funny quote.

 

I capture the important moments, like graduating from preschool-

 

He wore the tassel right over his face the whole time.

 

Little details like that could be forgotten as the years go by. I want to always remember how cute he was and how happy I was about that silly tassel on his nose.

 

 

The secret of life is remembering to be grateful for and savoring those little moments.

 

 

 

 

My favorites are the silly moments, like when they get caught standing on the coffee table-

 

He’s so busted.

Not pictured is the slice of pizza in his hand.

Also not pictured, he’s wearing nothing but his Spongebob undies.

That’s how we roll.

 

Don’t be judging me, now. I’m keepin’ it real and all.
