If You Give a Six-Year-Old a Camera...

I suppose there's a reason that Hank doesn't like going to bed an hour before Madeleine. No matter how much we assure him there's not, a small part of him must know there's fun to be had downstairs long after he and Elisabeth are asleep.

The other night was no exception.

As usual, Madeleine and I (or sometimes Superdad and Madeleine) read books together.

Out comes Superdad with the camera. Which then prompts this:

"Mom, can I have a turn taking some pictures?"

My book is nearing the end of its climax. Yes, anything you want! Just, please, let me finish my book!

Her finished product is... uh... interesting.

And maybe even a touch embarrassing.

And now my book is over and my memory card is almost full. Time for bed. Good-night, Madeleine.

Really cute post! I can SO relate to the do-whatever-you-want-I-just-want-to-finish-this-book thing!!! Please compliment Madeleine on her photography. Stunning. ;)

...Especially the portrait of you & superdad... (I can't believe you shared that! lol!)

Too cute!! What book were you reading?

What book were you reading?

My Sister's Keeper. It always looked interesting and then you mentioned it awhile back on your blog so I picked up a copy. It was a fun book but in a harsh, painful way.

Yeah for digital cameras!

it's me, Val said...

Isn't it fun to give them the camera? I love the mystery before looking at the pictures :)
