Yesterday was my DD's end of school picnic at a local park. So, on my lunch break I went down there and found it to be the perfect opportunity to snap a few pictures of her with her friends. By the time I got there she was finished with her lunch and playing with her friends. I followed them around a bit taking pictures trying to capture who she is with her friends. Today, one of her friends moms (who was also there taking pictures) emailed me to say that DD told her daughter that it was "freaky" the way I followed them around. :sad: Doesn't she know that I was just trying to get enough pictures to do a 2 page scrapbook spread???? :lmao: Ah well, I guess I embarrassed her sufficiently. My job here is done. I relayed this story to my husband who replied "There are plenty of times I thought you were freaky with all your pictures." They just don't understand. :sad2:

Don't worry she'll do the same thing to her kids some day. It's a mommy's right of passage.

Today was special person's day and I took the camcorder and the camera, my kids are trained well. They posed for every pic they knew I was taking. LOL

Thanks! It's true- I knew this day was coming, just didn't think it would get here so fast. I did take comfort in the fact that she gave me tons of hugs before I left and then signed "I love you" to me from far away. So not all is lost!

This is when the paperazzi style super zoom lenses come into play!

Sometimes I miss those days and am envious of you with younger kids. Other days, I remind myself that I did my time as a mom of school age or younger and my turn will come as a grandma, I hope!!

Cherish these moments :grouphug:
