Parents w/ Cameras!!
Air , Photography , Randomness

I have often said I would be a bad mother because any time something amusing happened I would have to photograph it, whether its bad or good. I would never endanger the child's life, but a little extra discomfort of the sake of a amusing picture is worth it right?

Anyway, Kevin found this story of a parent who seems to follow my philosophy and I just have to share!!

"I was working in the office this afternoon (from home) when my daughter Aubrey came into the house to inform me that Justin was stuck. Well, the kids often play that game with me and as I was engaged in my work I didn't feel the need to rush out to check. I told Aubrey instead to tell Justin to get himself unstuck. 20 minutes later Aubrey returned to let me know that Justin could not get himself unstuck and that he was very sad. I decided to check it out, annoyed, and to my surprise Justin had managed to slide himself in between the two mailboxes and wedge himself tight. I had to climb up on top and pull him out and it was a struggle at that. Morale of the story, Sometimes kids are actually telling the truth!"

Thank you to Automags.org for this one.


Thank god that was photographed - because otherwise no one would believe it. Soooo funny.

I just really love the line: " Aubrey returned to let me know that Justin could not get himself unstuck and that he was very sad"

You can almost hear it.

This reminds me of the time my brother and I decided to play hide and seek with Mom (without telling her). We hid in the dryer (I think I was almost 4 and Sean was almost 2). I took her a long time to find us, but our giggling finally gave us away.

Oh my god, that's cruel! "Oh honey! Wait, before I help you, let me get my camera!"

The kid had been hanging there for the better part of an hour - if he was REALLY that upset I think some screaming and wailing would have followed - a minute more to take a picture is SOOOOOOOOO worth it. It's not like he was getting any more hurt or stuck.
