My kids have been begging for a camera ever since last week when mine came in the mail and they were told they have to keep their paws off. So my husband was online buying me a tripod, and he saw this el cheapo camera that somehow ended up in the cart too. It all came in the mail last night. The kids each got 20 minutes turns to mess around with it, and when the images got loaded up on the computer, look what I found!
Is his mommy a blogger, or what???!!!! Bwa ha ha!!!
Oh, and if you're wondering why I suddenly turned on comments after a year and a half of going without, I had an epiphany yesterday when I was talking to my oldest son. I was telling him about my memories of taking a speech class in college and how nervous I would get before speaking in public.
Him: Mom, you should have just pretended that there was no one in the audience.
Me: Yeah, but you have to make eye contact with people when you're giving a speech. You can't just look at the ceiling.
Him: Why not?
Me: Because eye contact is important if you want your audience to trust you. Eye contact is important if you want to make a connection with them. Besides, in a speech class you could end up with an F if you look at the ceiling.
Me (in my head): Oh my gosh. I've been blogging as if I don't have an audience. I've been blogging at the ceiling. I don't want an F.
