It's my birthday. In like four days. My husband has smuggled gifts into our house and I haven't known where they are. I knew he had smuggled them in because he can't keep a secret like that to save his life, but I told him I didn't want them until my birthday. They were secret until last night when I needed to get a bed sheet and he said not to yank them all out. Well, knowing you have presents and where they are is different than not knowing where they are. I had the itch. I thought about them all day. And I know when I casually mention things that I want to Matt, he gets it on the brain too and wants to do what I ask.(unless of course it's chore related!)
Well....I cracked. I mentioned to him that I wanted them. So then he says 'ok' like I knew he would and I try to tell him that "no, don't....keep them till Wednesday". I said this not so convincingly;) So happy early birthday to me! He got me a....
It's pretty gosh darn neat if I do say so myself! The head on it swivels! So it's waaaay easy to use. So easy a 5 year old can do it. And he did. Of course he couldn't get the hang of pressing the shutter button half-way to let it focus and then finishing the job with a little more pressure. No.
Instead he pressed it half-way...and held it...and held it some more. I tried and tried to tell him how to do it but he was having some major issues. He'd get it once...and capture my overwhelming 'patience' facial expression.
I know. Special.
It's hard for me...trying to explain things to children. Instead I get flustered and watch them depress the button...and then have like a turret's twitch in anticipation of pressing the button all the way...and then nothing happening. I thought for a few moments he was going to side twitch my camera off the tripod! But he somehow managed to snap a few...and then I had to snap a few because it was part of my gift!!!
she's so pleasant!
not half bad!
