No Photographs, Please!

     It has finally happened.

     This afternoon, I was simultaneously pushing Violet on the swing and taking picture after picture.  My theory is, the more photographs I take, the greater chance that I will get a really good one.  Usually this strategy works out in my favor.  

     Today it did not.

     Violet woke up a Diva this morning and wore that hat throughout the day.  As I snapped my fourth or fifth photo, her brow wrinkled, eyes narrowed and she demanded, “Stop taking my picture!”

     Well!  Feeling like some invasive paparazzi in my own backyard, I pocketed the camera.  

     I was done taking pictures anyway.  Really.

     Violet loves looking through my scrapbooks and I took this opportunity to point out to her that if I didn’t take lots of pictures, there would be no scrapbooks.  She pondered this bit of information for a moment and seemed to accept it as truth.  (I keep telling her I’m always right, but she is 2-going-on-15 and is very skeptical of how much I really know.)  

     Then, “Push me higher, Momma!”

  1. The pictures are Great. You made my day. It’s dreay, cold and damp out. Rained and wind blew all night. Something upstairs makes a funny noise when the wind blows. Hope it’s not something blowing off the roof. granny

    • O.M.G. I love that shirt too! You really pay attention, spotting that with so little visible. I found that shirt at K-mart when we were in Indiana last week and fell in love. You should see the whole picture. We went to dinner at church that night and I immediately took off Violet’s hoodie so she could run around with her Rainbow Brite shirt in full view. I live vicariously through my daughter. It’s easier to find great fashion for her than it is for me. And cheaper too!
