I had one of those sweet, simple mommy moments yesterday when I started looking through pictures on my camera and came across a bunch of pictures that Adelie has taken in the last few weeks. I catch her running off with my camera quite a bit lately and as nervous as it makes me, I love seeing the world through the eyes of a two year old! Especially seeing what’s important to her–I have countless pictures of Barbies on my camera and I can’t bring myself to delete them.
I know it’s scary, but give in a little, hand them the camera (with some supervision) and see what you get. I may actually frame some of these I love them so much. This is life’s sweet simplicity at it’s finest.

I let her run off with my camera without supervision for a few minutes until I realized it may be taking a swim in her pool. When I came running out, she said, “I’m just taking pictures of my flowers really quick.”
