Fun Monday (Again!)

I am totally digging this Fun Monday thing. This week's challenge was presented by Swampy. We are to link to a memorable post. My memorable post is a) pretty recent and b) from someone I read all the time. I tried going through CPA Mom's blog roll and reading new blogs, but in the back of my mind, the one that stuck in my head was this one, by Mrs. CPA.

Why? It just really hit home. I joke about how I always have my camera with me to take pictures, but I don't. I don't have it upstairs in the playroom when Audrey reaches for her sister and Ashley abides and gives her a hug. I don't have it for that first wake up, squinty eye morning face from both my girls. And I don't have it when Ashley is playing with her friend across the street and reaches for her hand to hold. And as she states in her post, "hopefully I can look back and capture the same feeling" as those times I wish I had a camera...

I agree, Great post!
I wish I had a videocamera with me everytime my 3 year old says "I love you mom" or "Thank you mom"
Instead of everyone just seeing the "wild side" of him-LOL!

The post that you referenced hit close to home for me too.....time just flies by and really it's the little things that count the most. The only problem is, the kids do those things when you least expect it!

I totally agree with you here. If only we could capture these ordinary, yet incredibly special moments and hold on to them forever. It's sad how much we forget through the years.

I loved that post too!

That is why I wish I had a super slim camera I could keep in my pocket. Like one of those razer phones or something. But with great quality.

Thanks so much for the great gift box you sent me. I'll email you in the a.m. when I'm not so tired.

I left a comment yesterday and blogger ate it, so humph.

Thank you for such a sweet honor. Out of all the posts on all the blogs, you chose mine, and that means a lot. Probably that you don't read enough blogs, but I'm ok with that. :-)
