Do You See What I See?

Welcome Smiling Mom to my site today for July's Blog Exchange.

I thought a lot about July 1st's blog exchange topic, "In my child's eyes." The reality is my life is so busy and fast paced that I often don't slow down and allow myself the time to see, I mean really see, what is important to my kids.

So I decided to hand my son a camera and let him take pictures of anything important to him.

This is what he saw.

Our dog Kayla, one of the most important things to him.

Kayla, the dog.

His Sister, eClaire. They live to disagree, with moments of pure love and tender moments interspersed.

What boy doesn't love his Mac truck?

The racetrack. Oh the racetrack.


The blanket, "It has big holes and little holes. It' s my blanket."

The blanket.

This about sums up my son's favorite things. If his Grandpa was here, he'd of photographed him too. Life at three is sheer excitement.

All play and no work.

Life is good.

I'm over at Smiling Mom today so check out my post there!


  1. Great post and so very true, the "blanket" is truly one of the most loved things in our home.

  2. Brilliant idea to had your little man the camera! My daughter has been taking many of her own photos and I need to turn them into a post. Thanks for the idea.

  3. Tomorrow, I am handing over the camera to one of my kids... I'm thinking a webkin will be photod but looking forward to a surprise or two. Thanks for the idea!
