Is There Film...Oops!

Today as I sat chatting with my Prince Charming I was blissfully unaware of the trouble brewing in the other room. Like most families we have a "no child" zone in our home, the den. This is the room with all the "grown-up stuff," like Daddy's computer, Mommy's crafts and such. The kids have always styed out, unless they want either me or Daddy when we are in there. Today that really changed.

I was happily typing away in conversation when in walks Emily (2) with Neon Orange acrylic paint smeared all over her face and coating her hair. It was also all over her clothes. She was distraught that the bottle was empty. So was I, but for an entirely different reason. I hauled her to the bathroom, placed in her the tub and then stripped off her clothes. As the water was running it occured to me this would make a really cute scrapbook page. (hee hee.) I ran and got my husband's camera and took 3 of the best framed shots I have ever pulled off. She was cute, orange and modestly framed with those big dark eyes looking so very innocent. It was perfect.

After cleaning her all up I had to call Daddy and share. "Honey, there's film in your camera right?" "I don't know. Gently test and see if it winds freely or has some resistance." DOH!
