52 Week Project - Week 4
This pic was taken as I prepared to eat sand on a camping trip this week.
I do like to put the camera down occasionally and get in the mix.
Partly because I hate to miss out on the fun and partly because of the kind of Mum I want to be.
I have plenty of respect for my own mother and the hard work she put into raising us, but I remember her as more of a bystander during some of our most fun escapades.
Mum would often sit by the side of the pool reading or lay in the sun while we ran amuck on slides, rides and adventures.
I did wish she would let her hair get wet and come join us.
I want Magoo to recall that I was happy to make a fool of myself, ditch composure, attempt stand up sandboarding and consequently (and literally) eat sand in the name of positive parenting!!
I want him to remember me as part of the action - not just the one who cleaned up the spills, warned about every hidden danger or videoed the fun.
Come on, get in the action and in front of the camera with us!
Hey, wouldya look at my form pre sand-sandwich, wouldya??!!
