Well well well, what do we have here? Pictures taken with a regular camera as opposed to crappy iPhone photos? Hallelujah!
Usually I only have time in my day to take a couple quick shots with my iPhone camera in front of the coat closet mirror. Today I realized that it was too sunny for good pictures in my usual spot. Rainbows and sparkles and patterns were coming in through the partial stain glass windows we have set into the front doors, and it was completely messing with the lighting. Darn you sun for being so bright and filled with sunshine today! So I had a choice to either wait until the afternoon when the sun moved over and behind my house, or to drag out the old tripod and point-and-shoot camera.
I must admit that the pictures do come out better the "old-fashioned" way. I may see if I can set aside a few minutes to do this everyday. We shall see…
This morning Maya woke me up, her voice filled with urgency. "Mommy, where's Daddy? He needs to help me get the big toy ant from my shelf!"
"I can do that for you", I replied.
"No you can't! Because it's April Fools Day, and the teachers said to get something scary out like a toy dinosaur, or bug or spider and put it on the floor and try to scary your Mommy in the morning. So I need Daddy to get the ant so I can scare you with it!"
Hmm, I don't think Maya quite gets how to perform an April Fools joke yet. But I did my very best to scream and act surprised when she placed the giant toy ant by my foot.
