Life through the eyes of 3 year olds

This is what happens when two 3 year olds get a hold of a camera in the privacy of a van. Now mind you, that the 5 year old does not participate in their shenanigans, although he does get his picture taken and finds it quite humorous.

Any guesses as to what this is a picture of?

This isn’t even half of the pictures. :)

Can you imagine the conversation that took place during all of this?

I would have loved to be a little mouse in the corner?

When I came upon the scene of their crime, little man was first to tell me that he hadn’t had any part in their shenanigans. Of course he didn’t. He doesn’t like getting into trouble but he sure is entertained by their trouble making, which keeps him from telling on them.

The two 3 year olds informed me that they were having a photo shoot. Of course they were. The 2 little trouble makers are good at either finding trouble or making it themselves.

First of all they were suppose to be eating their freeze pops on the steps NOT in the van. Second of all, they were not suppose to be playing in the van. Lastly, they were not suppose to be playing with the camera.

When my daughter showed me the photo’s they had taken we couldn’t help but laugh.

As you can see, the 3 years olds have fun in their trouble making and the 5 year old is along for the entertainment. And us mom’s? We have to laugh or we would be crying all the time.

Such is life, seen through the eye’s of 3 year olds.

First of all, please accept my apology for not being here for so long. Secondly, the pictures and the little persons in the pictures are adorable!

I've read back through some of your recent posts and I even wrote a very long comment but then it wouldn't let me leave it because I wasn't logged in to Wordpress so here's the short version.

I could have written the posts about the weight gain and being embarrassed to be seen by anyone so I feel your pain. I too live in exile rather than know that people are wondering what the hell happened to me and my ballooning weight since I've never had a weight problem before.

The biggest difference is my husband still tells me I'm beautiful and my weight doesn't bother him but I think he's lying. I'm not sure which is better...to be lied to or to hear the truth?

Last but not least.....you are beautiful no matter what size you are and you need to love yourself and let your husband deal with his problems because it's really not you. You are loved! HUGS

Oh too funny.. and cute.. and pretty decent photos at that! Your Littles are just adorable.

Alix said...

Ohmighosh, Lori.... those photos are actually quite brilliant. Artsy, correct, in focus, and interestingly framed. #5 made me the breath catch in me! And the mystery photo... well... if that's a "cleavage" I see, I think I know what kind of down under subject we're seeing. On the other hand, maybe it's just the inside of a magnified elbow! Yes? No? I'm so confused.

Anyway... I'm a little jealous that you have such sweet adorable and creative little ones abounding in your life. Although I must say that in photo #2, that ice pop rather looks like your cherub is pulling shiny skin off her cute little face. Glad I enlarged the photo for a closer look. Her perfect skin is definitely better left in place.

Great post my dear. Thanks so much for sharing!

This is the third post today that I have read where a little three year old stole a camera. I'm quite entertained and fascinated! Love it, love you, love them!!!
