Things that tweak our sense of right and wrong!
This past weekend was my grandson’s 4th birthday party. His mother and grandmother decided to do it up big time and invited a ton of people and had one of those big jumpy things in the back yard as well as a clown come by to entertain the kids.
So with all of these folks in attendance you can imagine the pile of presants right? He had a ball opening them until he got to a set of boxes from a relative that had a pack of socks then a nice sweater. As he tore open the socks and realized what they were he exclaimed in a loud and clear voice for all to hear: “This is just wrong!” Silence swept across the room then the entire assembly burst out laughing! Now from a newly minted 4 year olds point of view it was just wasn’t right! But it didn’t matter a bit that the same person had also given him a GIANT BALL that he could get inside of and roll around. We all had to agree and laugh along!
I too feel this way from time to time so I have decided to share these experiences (as they pertain to photography) as they happen with you. I am also going to add this to my growing list of quotes for photography!
I think next year at his 5th I will give him a digital camera and see it it is wrong!
What a cutie…and smart enough to speak his mind! Thank goodness it was well received…after the initial shock!
Out of the mouths of babes…
Nice story Mark. My grand daughter will be 2 in April, they grow so fast don’t they!
he is adorable. we have learned to give my grandsons their clothes when we buy them and give them something to open later on. That way they can’t say It is so wrong. Ya it is funny as long as the person giving the gift isn’t offened
Thanks Jodie, he is indeed! They came over tonight for dinner and fun was had by all!
