Through the Eyes of a Child

From the title of this post, you might think this is some introspective piece on viewing the world with the innocence of a child and such. But, let me tell you right now - it is most definitely not.

A few days ago I decided my iPhone calendar needed syncing with my computer's Outlook calendar. When I plugged it in the little prompt came up asking me if I wanted to import photos. I went ahead and clicked on it thinking there were only a few because I don't use my camera phone very much. Well, it said that there were 284 photos to import. Hmmm - where had all of these photos come from I wondered.

As you'll see from the sampling I'm including here, they came from a 3-year old who obviously likes to play with mommy's phone (unbeknownst to mommy of course).

So if you've ever wondered what the world looks like through the lens of a 3-year old with an iPhone, here you go:

Mommy cooking dinner (thank goodness that one was not a close-up)

Unlike this close-up of daddy eating at the Chinese restaurant (complete with blurry photo bomber in the background)

I think she has some definite talent - don't you? It also makes me very cautious now when she has my phone because who knows what might show up the next time I upload photos.
