We always read about how people are too attached to their phones and they are missing the important things. And I do agree to a certain extent. I love my phone and I do need it for work, but there are times when it’s not on hand, like at the dinner table, when we are spending time as a family, at the movies and so on.
But there are other times when I am SO glad that I almost always have my phone with me. And earlier this week was one of those times. It was a beautiful November day. My four-year old and I had just gotten home and we decided to enjoy the weather and blow bubbles outside. But before that, I wanted to get a picture of her because she looked so cute in the new toque that I had bought her and I wanted to post it on Instagram. (Keeping it real here.)
But of course, she wouldn’t stand still. She wanted to keep running around, hugging me, everything but stand still for a picture. We ended up with a case of the giggles, but in the process, because I had my phone with me, I was able to capture these amazing pictures of her.
It showed Kyah in all she was; her seriousness, her mischievousness and her happiness. I can’t tell you how happy it made me and my hubby to look at these pictures that night. And now we will always have them and we can always remember her like this, even when she’s a teenager and mad at us for something.
What are some of the wonderful moments you’ve been able to spontaneously capture due to modern technology?
