“Capture the Everyday is about getting you to capture those everyday moments in your life! Each Thursday, Mel fromAdventuroo issues 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 weeks task: Everyday Color
This is one of those technicolor days of summer that I want to blow up and plaster all over the walls inside our house now that the gray and rainys have begun. Seriously rain, get off my lawn. I hear Texas has a great big lawn they’d love you to drench.
I hadn’t thought about it until reading Mommy Wants Vodka‘s post on The Stir, but playgrounds really have morphed into some oddly round cornered and sterilized version of their former selves. Part of the exhilaration of being tottered up to the treetops was the palpitating fear of plummeting down to the jarring ass slap as your co-totterer leaped off while laughing and pointing. Which is what happened about 20 seconds after this pic was snapped.
Come on people, chillax to the max. Do you think I would really assault my kid in that manner? And then blog about it? On the internets? Plus he’s so tall and skinny he’d probably float. Which would rule.
You know what else would rule is a kid who could phase through walls like Kitty Pryde. You’d never have to worry about losing your keys, you’d always have access to all the swanky velvet rope clubs or affairs(assuming they’d be cool with a kid living their life and staying young on the floor), if(and WHEN, people) the zombie apocalypse occurs you’d be able to slumber peacefully inside a locked bank vault. I’m just thinking ahead. Being prepared, like the Girl Scouts taught me. Those Girls really know their stuff. Maybe even how extricate themselves from posts gone rogue.
