I am really behind in the whole scrapbooking thing.
I am horrible about taking pictures of things (I totally rely on my sister).
I'm even worse about organizing them (in some way other than in whatever folder they happen to download to on the computer).
Are my children are missing out?
When I do remember to take pictures I'm always disappointed because I end up viewing the important event from behind a little screen.
It bums me out to see these events second-hand.
I feel like I'm missing out.

(self-talk q:) what is the purpose of recording these events?
(self-talk a:) I suppose its for those participating to have some reminder.
Could this be one of those sacrifices that we as parents, should make for our children? (I'm so not good at this whole sacrifice thing; isn't it all about me?)
I may miss out on some of the present excitement, but then that memory is carried on for my child and others.
Is that the deal?
Help me out here. Because I feel like I'm missing out either way.
(Maybe if I did it more often I could be confident of holding the camera just right and not have to look through it to get the picture?)
