Chapter 46-Having Their Picture Taken

It was my own fault. Despite having measured him against the door frame recently, I had forgotten just how tall Raffie is getting, what he can now reach, and more importantly, the irrestible temptation of a mobile phone.

So while I cooked his dinner, Raffie ‘borrowed’ my phone and went on a secret photographic rampage, capturing the many loves in his life. And here is a selection from the end result, and his first photo essay is an insight into this pre-schooler’s priorities.

“I took all their pictures because they are special Mummy, I worked really hard.” he beamed at me. So whether it’s trapping his toys and rescuing them, watching DVDs, or shredding bits of paper to fill his recycling truck, it’s clear that a picture really does tell 1,000 words, no matter how old you are.

    • Thanks lovely, I know-he had lined up every single one of his DVDs for their photocall-it was chaos! Actually you may have a point-I can feel a visit to Pinterest coming on! Lovely to hear from you, hope you and yours are well x

  1. This is great, perhaps you should get him one of those childrens cameras so he can continue his new found hobby ;0)

    Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)

    • Thank you Jane, he is very proud of his work! Yes, I am thinking maybe Father Christmas may be bringing him one! It’s a pleasure, hope to link up next week all being well xx

  2. Oh that’s cute. And pretty impressive, some of those shots. N’s showing not much interest in cameras yet (touch wood), although he did take lots of photos of my feet and his at a festival in the summer
