Jeff and I took the kids to Palm Springs for the long weekend.

When I downloaded my photos from the trip, I found these:

I’m disturbed by these pictures for a few reasons.

  1. These pictures were taken on my camera by an unauthorized party.  In other words, I didn’t tell the culprit that he had permission to use my camera.
  2. These pictures were taken in my bedroom and I wasn’t in it.  My kids are not allowed in my room when I’m not present.
  3. Garrett is monkeying around on my chair in these pictures.  That’s forbidden.
  4. Emma is playing with my ipod touch.  Without my permission.
But, the thing that bothers me the most?

Where is their sense of self preservation?

Seriously….

They let their little brother take pictures of them getting into trouble?

What is wrong with these children?  🙂

    BUSTED! But what I’d like to know did the photographer get in trouble too? I mean he did catch the other two doing family crimes, and more or less reported them to the authorities like a family police officer, so if the bad guys got in trouble then does the family snitch get in trouble? OMG I sound like my son. He was the family lawyer for my kids & always tried to get them out of trouble! LOL

  14. 24

    Ha Ha! Have you thought of giving them all camera’s for Christmas. Just think what you could find out!

  15. 26

    I can tell you why, they didn’t far enough ahead to getting caught.

    Angie,

    I think maybe your young son has the upper hand. The older children may not have been a match for him. Blackmail anyone?

    Mom, do you romp on the furniture when alone in your room? Did your daughter learn the “right touch” on your ipod from you? Have you decided if all or just the photographed ones get in trouble? I wonder what they did that didn’t get photographed. Absolutely funny.

    Angie do you think little brother took the risk just to show you what the older ones were up to??? He could totally do undercover work for you….think about it , granted might want to give him his own disposable camera one that is under $10.

    Isn’t it funny how our kids tell on themselves??? I’ve told my son that he is a terrible liar and should just give it up. Truthfully, I’m glad he can’t tell a lie and I hope it stays that way — of course, if my husband is any indication, I have NOTHING to worry about!
