Hands off

Me: Hey Anna, over here, give me a smile!

Her:  I want to take it.

Me: You can't take your own picture, silly.  Now give me a smile!

Her:  You took your own picture yesterday.

Me:  That's different.  Mommy's phone isn't a toy.  Come on, you look so cute in those pigtails!

Her:  No.

Me:  C'mon....

Her:  I want to take it.

Me:  Alright, let me take one picture, then I'll let you take one.  Okay?

Her:  Okay.

Me:  What?  You're not going to smile?







Me: Okay, here you go, but be careful, and just take... wait... don't touch the...!






My phone makes her happy.  Dammit.

You may have noticed that my blog has been heavy on pictures and light on writing of late.  Do I need to go over my excuses again?  Or have you memorized them by now?  Divorce, stress, migraines, stress.  Some of which might be related.  Bear with me.  One of these days writing will again appear on my blog.

In fact yesterday I escaped to one of my favorite haunts where I rendezvoused with three of my favorite addictions:


 
Something blogworthy may come of this.


Me:  Hey!  Give me that!  You little...

  4. Mate, even in your (apparently) down time, you're writing better than li'l ol' me at the moment ;) Have you seen how light on my blog has been lately? I've resorted to reposting old posts! Must also be something in the air, I'm reading a lot of it on blogs around the place.
    Hope you find your groove soon xxxx

  5. I think my kids have finally given up their interest in my phone. Course now that I've said that they will fight over it tomorrow.

  6. @ IRL, it was good, but it was gone in 3 bites. Nom nom!

    @ Being Me, yeah I think a few of us are suffering bloggy burn out. Or something like that.

    @ Kristin, Anna is doing a Dora puzzle on my phone as we speak. My name is pushover.

  7. Anna's expression says it all. Hehehe.

  8. kids and cameras kill me. Remember when you had to take the photo, take the film to the shop, wait a week, pay a fortune and get one good shot out of the entire roll??
    Kids these days....

  9. Kids - you gotta love 'em! She's got that pout down pat!

  10. Anna is the bomb, there will be many-a teenage boys one day on the receiving end of that fabulous dirty look!

  11. That first pic was hilarious. I love more pics and less writing in a post (for my posts at least) so I don't mind them on other people's. Cute cute post tho'

    ReplyDelete
  12. @ Holly - oh god, give me something else to stress over why don't you! LOL.

    @ Woog - hmmm, barely, back when we had to darn our own socks and grind our own coffee with flint...

  13. @ Mena, you know I actually enjoy them too when others post them! But I do miss writing...

  14. Those are not happy pigtails. They do seem to perk up when the phone is within reach though...

    ReplyDelete
  15. That's too cute. how do you not laugh,when she looks at you like that?!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, I'm sure I at least snorted a little.

    ReplyDelete
  17. good to hear that I am not the only 'pushover' that hands her phone over too - I like to think of it as not sweating the small stuff! Hubby goes mental at me for being so soft...

    Love Anna's cheeky smile in the last pic.

  18. A picture paints a thousand words but I'm hung up on the cake.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my, that's a fabulous look in the first picture. We must never get our girls together - they would just try and out dirty look each other - it would take some time to decide who's is best (worst?).

    I've given the girl our point and click digital camera. It was easier than all the saying no and ensuing tantrums would have been. She's been careful with it, so far....

  20. Ha! Ha! I love it! I am also one of those parents who likes to take photos of the "real" moments, not just the smiles.

    ReplyDelete
  21. She is cute!! Divorce and stress are synonyms - you are forgiven the lack of words! :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like that first photo,she has that look perfected. You have just unwittingly documented the beginning of the end of any peace you may have had, (how long until she is a teenager?) hehehe.

  23. Fab post (as ever). The amazing thing about you, Kristin, is that even when you're going through what you're going through, you've got a sense of humour and a sense of loving that is just amazing. I spotted the lovely comment you made about me over at Cassiopedia's place and it just made my heart sing. You are a shining star.

  24. LOL
    The cute factor wins ;)

  25. gorgeous pics...especially loved the last one!

    ReplyDelete
  26. those are three great addictions! and a beautiful kid too!
    we need breaks from writing tons, like we might normally do. i love how you are communicating with photos. it works quite well with your sense of humor. love and peace to you. this time, somehow, is conspiring to make you a better artist.

  27. Aw, can I just wrap you all up and fly you out here to Kansas? Love your comments.

    Maxabella, you win the flattery contest hands down. Well, Ed, you're pretty good too!

  28. That first photo, I can see shades of teenager coming through. She is just perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's a nice looking cake!

  30. @ Veronica - this is about 60% teenager. I'm scared.

    @ Glen - it was gooood. But too little.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I meant, *she* is about 60% teenager!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am glad you stopped by leaving me your tracks to follow you all the way over here. I enjoy your honest writing, I guess I will be around, too.
    Take care!

  33. Is that a diary on that cafe table? A very pretty diary?
    All the pretty ones are always sold out whenever I'm diary shopping. *sigh*

    I'd say that's 65% teenager.

  34. @ Simony, so glad to make your acquaintance. Looks like you are another displaced soul!

    @ Michelle, I know, that pic is a keeper!

    @ River, it's a journal, yes. I keep it with me in my purse for when inspiration strikes. I collect pretty journals, one of my mild addictions. Nice to see a new face, welcome!

  35. Cute as! My little angel is forever on my phone, the latest app is "talking tom" which she finds hysterical. Mind you I get the same sort of look if I actually dare to want to use my own phone.

    ReplyDelete
  36. @ Nerdycomputergirl - I know, it's as if ownership is slowly being transferred. At least she can show me how to use all the apps.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ok...she is definately your child. lol

Mmmm, comments - nom, nom, nom, nom!
