Capture the Everyday – The Copout

26 May

“Capture the Everyday is about getting you to capture those everyday moments in your life! Each Thursday, I’ll (Melissa from Adventuroo) issue a simple challenge to capture something that’s a part of your daily life. You can post just a picture or add some words to go along with it. You’ll have a week to get it done and then I’ll issue another. It’s a quick, easy way to start capturing those little parts of life we sometimes take for granted.”

This week’s task was to take a picture of ourselves playing with our kids.  Apparently I don’t do so well with rules and expectations.  Hmm, is that a positive or negative trait?  Glass half full, people.

Come on, y’all.  You knew at least one of us was going to cop out of actually being in the picture, right?  Yes, yes y’all.  Cause you’re smart like that.  S-M-R-T.  I bet you knew it would be me.  Why?  S-M-R-T as a whip, you ladies are.

I really do not enjoy the picture taking experience from the side of the camera that captures my dark circles, my hair in dire need of some sort of attention, my leggings clad body unfit for clothing of the more confining variety.  And, in my defense, it is freaking hard to take a picture of yourself with you kid with an iphone.

So here, let me distract you with the glorious cute that is my kid.  And, let me assure you, that is my voice so I am not completely out of bounds with this choice.  And all I have is this lousy link because my WordPress skillzies are not so S-M-R-T.  But the cute is worth the click so do it.

    I hear you on the picture with an iPhone thing be more than a bit tricky. Thus my super up close photo. I think we both get an A for effort. :)

    See you next Thursday.

    Love the bubs on the swing.

      True dat. Gotta remember that this exercise is about capturing the everyday moments, not taking the best photo ever. Effort ftw:)

    OMG he does so well on a big kid swing! And cool to hear your voice!

    It’s okay that you copped out. Just promise me this weekend you’ll hand over control of your phone to your significant other and have him snap at least ONE picture of you and bubs. I promise you’ll cherish it one day, leggings and all! :-)
