I really don’t think it’s too much to ask. I mean, just ONE DANG PHOTO for fourth of July. I like making memories and I love taking pics of my kids. I would LOVE it if they would cooperate and let me get one, mmkay? I CAN HAS FOTO PLZ?
Since I got myself this digital SLR camera (ok, total lie, The Guy I Live With surprised me with it for Christmas almost two years ago) I take tons of pictures. And by tons, I mean I take hundreds a week. Mostly of my dogs. Why would I take pictures of my dogs? Let’s just say they are a little more…cooperative. As in, my hyper, ADHD-stricken dogs who are most likely autistic themselves are TEN THOUSAND TIMES more cooperative with picture-taking than my boys. Want proof?
I’m convinced that the dogs like me more than my kids, too. I mean, LOOK AT WHAT MY KIDS DO:
I don’t know what it is. It’s almost like they WANT to ruin the pics on purpose. It seems as though Bugaboo deliberately tries to do something disgusting in every picture, just to get a rise out of me. If he doesn’t have his hands shoved down his pants or he isn’t stripping nekkid just out of the frame of the camera, he’s digging for gold in his nostrils:
The more things change, the more they stay the same, no? Perhaps after I get another round of three hundred photos I’ll have ONE USABLE PICTURE for an album.
