A parenting gripe

all these clever people work out the cost of raising children, I think it’s not
based on the food they eat or the clothes they need, but the destruction they
make! Crayoned walls need repainting,
laptop keys get picked off just for kicks (with that I just made do, who need’s F5
anyway? its hugely over rated!) and damaged bits and bobs constantly need

seem to go through digital cameras like nobody’s business! I probably do not help the situation as I
let the kids have free roam with them, letting them take random shots of just
about anything! Going on the results
over the years its not been an overriding success, we have had plenty of
pictures of bits of people, some of their face, lots of their feet, a fair few
blurred ones.

Am not sure what angle they are going for with this shot? Distressed house maybe! Toy chaos, or maybe just maybe they were trying to take a picture of me given my knee features.

My boys do not have the
making of professional photographers yet… but they are getting marginally more
skilled I promise!

took a lovely one of hubbie and I together, its rare to have one of us both, as
usually we have to be the ones taking the picture. So with this in mind it might be worth getting one more digital
camera with them being a little older, it might just survive this time! The current one has been dropped a few times
too, so the batteries are only just clinging on, they fall out occasionally and
its not the same getting an impromptu shot whilst your scrambling about trying
to get the batteries off the floor AGAIN…

camera is also featuring a prominent black line across the screen; it isn’t there when
you download the pictures only when you are trying to see what you are taking a
picture of! My camera hunt has narrowed
down to a Canon EOS from Clifton Cameras or maybe a Pentax K30, if I can convince
hubbie I deserve to be splashed out on. 
We have just had a new sofa and that is bearing up okay, the mass of
scatter cushions along the back have yet to be flung across the room or made
into dens (although that might be down to us now having the EZ-Fort in residence so my cushions are not as appealing anymore!)… but it would be nice to think my boys are finally learning to respect our belongings!
