Don’t Point That Thing at Me: 02.12.10

Be careful of kids with cameras. And never post the photos they take of you on the web.

Since I just got the word from the doctor today that I’ll be in a cast for four more weeks before I can begin to use my foot again, I was feeling blue and not so motivated to work.

I ended up looking through our family photos and finding a bunch of silly photos that my kids took of me (or posed me for a pic) and thought “What better way to get out of my funk than by poking fun at myself?”

So here ya go.

Derek MarkhamYes, I did enjoy it. I think.

My kids didn’t want me to get a sunburn. Which is nice…

Anyone recognize the brand of baby carrier I’m being tormented with? I think they might want to use this as a promo shot. Or not.

Derek MarkhamThis is right before I let out the primal scream of dominance. Dads do that when their kids mess with them too much.

Things I dig include: simple living, natural fatherhood, attachment parenting, natural building, unassisted childbirth (homebirth), bicycles, permaculture, organic and biodynamic gardening, vegan peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips, bouldering, and the blues. Find me elsewhere at @NaturalPapa, @DerekMarkham, Google+, or RebelMouse.

    My son is always taking super silly pictures of me too. Nice to know I am not the only one that plays along. love the ergo on the head we haven’t tried that one yet.

  • Aww how sweet! I actually just posted about my son and a camera on my blog last night. Husband wouldn’t let me add some of the ones of him.

    I think this may be a girl thing. I guess Jesse will have to watch out once our next one gets older!

    I am thinking Ergo as well (I have it in that Cranberry with tan). 🙂

  • awesome 🙂 thanks for sharing the smiles!

  • I’m impressed that your kids actually let you sleep in their presence, or do they just let you sleep so that they can sneak up on you with a camera?

      Umm… I think the latter of the two. They’re sneaky.
