Pieces of Me

Pieces of Me

It’s easy for me to look at Robbie and wonder if I made any genetic contribution to him, whatsoever. He looks and, by all accounts, acts just like Toby at that age. Then sometimes he’ll surprise me by doing or liking something that is so “me” and not Toby at all.

I tease (nag) Toby pretty often about how I’m not actually documented in any of our family adventures unless I literally hand him the camera with an order to take a picture of me. Recently I’ve been experimenting with overcoming this by just giving Robbie the camera instead. So far, it’s working out pretty well. Once he gains the upper body strength to handle an SLR, maybe I’ll start contracting him out.

Below is a picture he took of me when he asked to play with my pocket camera. That composition? That’s all my genes, baby!

    It is funny that you think he looks more like Toby ’cause I totally look at him and see You!

    But you are right … he has quite the photography skills already. Atta boy, makin’ mommy proud!
