Levi’s Up Close

I finally got a new phone yesterday.

As much as it pained me to give up my Blackberry, I was growing tired of having to remove the battery and reinstall it every time I wanted to check my email.  Plus, on Saturday I got out of the car with my hands full and dropped it on the driveway.  Then I stepped on it.  I wear a size 11 shoe.  Enough said.

After spending over two hours at the phone store yesterday, my husband and I left with brand new Droids.  On a related note:  If anyone wants to help me set up my four email accounts, there’s a doughnut in it for you.

Our kids had been more than patient while we were choosing phones and getting things changed over.  As a reward, we decided to let our son have one of the old Blackberries, so he could still play games and take pictures.

I thought he would be more interested in Hangman, but he started snapping pictures left and right.  Inside the car, in the driveway, photos of the dog’s tail, my shoes, his football.  You name it, he took a picture of it.

But it wasn’t long before I realized he isn’t so much a photographer as he is a typical boy, because when I was reading my new phone manual I looked up to see him taking pictures of his own butt.

    I LOVE my new droid! Had to figure a few things out and still not using what I KNOW it can do up to it’s full potential. But I sure had fun clicking on a scheduled appointment when it came up and being given the option to Navigate with one click to the GPS navigation and I was on my way! I’ve got my calendar synced to my son’s so I know when he’s working and he know’s when I won’t be home. 🙂

    He must believe that it is a total work of art!

    Bwaahaha! That’s a hoot. You could put all his snaps together in a coffee table book. He’ll be famous.

    It could have been worse. You could have found him sitting on your All-In-One printer’s scanning bed.

    Size 11? 11?

    I know what big feet on a man is supposed to suggest (I wear a size 9.5 – so I’m “normal”), but what do big feet on a woman mean?

    Not that I’m saying you have big feet. I mean, in proportion, you’re probably …

    Oh. Nevermind.

    Don’t answer that.

    I think I’m going to go back to work now. There has to be SOMETHING I’m supposed to be doing now, right? I’m sure there’s something ….

    Get the kid a photocopy machine! He’s ready!

  • SurprisedMom

    I absolutely love your son! He gets me laughing out loud! He has an amazing sense of the wonderful and the absurd.

  • Melisa

    I hope he left his pants on for that.

  • meleah rebeccah

    Ahahahahahahah! Typical boy snapping photos like that!

  • domestic extraordinaire

  • Lisa

    Love it! But it is time to get really concerned when he starts taking pictures of YOUR butt, as mine did on our spring break trip last year!
