Why Moms Take All the Pictures

While we were at the beach over Christmas, Chris and I tried to get a picture together. Unfortunately, our arms weren’t long enough, so this is what the picture looked like:

Totally frame-worthy, right?

So, Chris had this great idea that Bean could take our picture. We showed him how to hold the camera and what button to push. Here’s what he got:

Not to be outdone, Gracie began insisting on taking our picture. We showed her what we had shown Bean, and she took this one:

We gave up on our picture, and instead I asked Chris to take a few of me with the kids. Here’s what he got:

Motherhood in action, y’all. The camera never lies.

Now, give Mommy back her camera…

  1. OMG I am DYING laughing here. I am rarely in front of the camera. Not because I don’t want to be, but because I have to request that someone take a picture of me, it’s just not automatic for dh to take pictures.

  2. This made me laugh. My husband is super tall (6’6″), and I’m on the short side (5’4″). He refuses to get down to “my level” to take a pic of me with our boys, so all pics are looking down on us.

    Gracie’s is so interestingly framed! It totally looks like she was being artsy on purpose – get that girl a kiddie camera! 😉

    Oh this is what I needed, a good laugh this morning! Thank you! I love the action shots, it’s just how things go for us!

  6. OMG! I am betting Chris won’t be allowed to hold the camera for quite some time! My four and a half year old LOVES to take pictures, however, it means that our warranty gets a workout. I just got a new cyber-shot for my birthday and it is hands off for the kiddos – but I am thinking of getting them the kids versions soon.
