why i’ll never be a professional photographer

Spring Break is over. We had a great time and the next countdown is on. 7 weeks to Indianapolis. I can’t wait. Some people think I’m a weirdo for being excited about living in the Midwest but I sincerely liked it there. I *really* hope it is where we end up after school but I know better than to get too attached to that idea.

Yesterday Monique and I had a photo shoot and play date planned. Preston and I were pretty psyched, I love Monique’s work and Preston thinks her kids are the coolest. Sadly Miss Cameroonie was not in the best spirits. She had three immunizations a few days prior, is/was teething, and (I think) had an upset stomach.

We decided to reschedule and I stayed in. At around 4:00 p.m. I realized it probably wasn’t going to rain and if the forecast is accurate it would be the last 70 degree day around here for a long time. I packed up the kids and my Canon. We went for a brief walk, hung out at the playground until Daddy showed up, and I got a few decent shots.

I learned that I will never be a professional photographer (not that it was ever in the cards for me but ya know) because I am an awful person. Oh, I’m just awful to my kids.

I was all : LOOK AT THOSE DAFFODILS! THEY’RE BEAUTIFUL!!! WON’T YOU SMELL ONE FOR ME! PLEASE? ILL GIVE YOU MONEY! TRAINS! MARSHAMALLOOOOOOOWS! DON’T YOU LOVE ME!

Oh well. I got a few cute shots and the kids got a few mini marshmallows. Not a bad afternoon.

My husband is at school doing homework and I am staying in with the kids (unless it doesn’t rain then I will force them out and to the daffodils again) and cracking open this month’s BabbaBox.

Have a wonderful Saturday xo

  1. I am the exact same way! I’m all “Loooook over over here! No, don’t look directly at the camera!” Professional dreams, dashed.

    Seriously your kids are the cutest! I love Cameron’s hair and headband. Is it weird I want to nom on her cheeks?
