Memories. We all have some. Some are more faulty than others. Some are more rosy as they fade. Jog?
At one point I carried a camera and a video to record events. I found that I never watched the videos. So, I returned to photographs pretty much exclusively. Even now, my spiffy mirrorless camera or iPhone makes video easy, I still prefer photos.
Wistfully, I recall. I see my kids and their antics, activities, accomplishments, and our times together. You can’t go back. I find these slides as little treasures. I am glad they are preserved. It is the legacy my kids will receive one day.
We had to watch three little ones. TV is the best sitter, ever! I bailed and took the easy way out. Sorry. It was a Disney movie – Dumbo. Mesmerized. Hypnotized. Badness. Everyone was distracted. Good? Bad? I viewed it as a means to an end. We were tasked with providing care and distraction. Oh, yes, we fed them later, food, real food, not junk. Hey, I can cook leftover mac and cheese. Grapes need no cooking. Yup, fruit, too.
