Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

If you give a child a camera... {RP Post}

He'll want to take your picture.

And as he wanders around the house, he'll find interesting things to photograph.

After 100 shots or so, he'll get hungry.

After he eats, he'll want to feed his stuffed animal.

When he sees his stuffed animal, he'll remember he needs to check on his Pokemon.

After taking a ton of photos of his Pokemon, he'll want to watch tv.

And more tv (and more and more and more...basically he'll take a photo of every single frame of the cartoon).

Then he'll leave the camera unattended and his brother will find it.

After fighting over who gets to play with the camera, he'll want to take your picture AGAIN. But you aren't agreeable to this idea so he'll give you the finger.

So, you may not want to give a child a camera. Especially after you upload the 200+ photos of "stuff" taken with the child's camera. :-)

(My deepest apolopies to author Laura Numeroff for butchering her beloved story books.)
