Ella quote and photo dump of the week

So I am reading a Care Bears book about Sharing to Ella at Bed time tonight when Loving? bear comes up in the story. Ella turns, looks up at me with a melting look and says, "Oh Daddy I love..............Mommy, Carmie and Tia......." I say, "and." And she says proudly, "I can do my Dora soap all by my self." It is tough being a very distant 4th or possibly even 5th or 6th to my wife, the two cats and who knows whom else. For your viewing pleasure here are some picks Ella took with my cell phone back in May. If you have ever taken a pic with a crappy 1.3 mp cell phone camera that you need to hold perfectly still for a few seconds while the pic is taken you will likely appreciate Ella's photos more. If not I hope you just enjoy the angle on life a three year old has. Chairs seem alive, cats and stuffed animals are important and you are wise to keep an eye on the ever dangerous and unpredictable vacuum cleaner.

Eeeeewwwww -- I didn't know anyone's filled Dyson canister could look like ours -- its one thing to see your own collection of cat hair and dander, but to see someone else's is just gross -- my face is all scrunched up in disgust. Thanks.

This Christmas I was thinking of getting my young children (7 and 5) a camera to - like Jared did - to let them capture their perspective of things. There are a number of "children's" cameras available: Target has several: you can get a 1.3 megapixel/1 inch view screen(no doubt super "laggy" when you move around) Dora-themed plastic landfill-oriented version for $50. Or, Target also has a 6 Megapixel/2.5 inch view screen "adult" camera for $90 - hey that's better than my frickin camera! Which to get... which to get...

I think I'll get the good one, super glue the selector to "auto" and teach them how to turn it on, hold it steady and push the button. ;)
