I’m dying here, people! Not literally, but figuratively. How the heck is it possible to have 4 cameras in the house and only one of them is working? Of course, the one that actually does work is on my husband’s iPhone and is not around when I need it! I mean, COME ON NOW! Our cameras are only a couple of years old, yet neither will hold a batter charge and one won’t even turn on when I put fresh batteries in. Then there’s my iPhone, which I can’t live without – partially because of its handy dandy camera – that at the moment is frozen and has been like this for the past few months. I know, I need to get that checked out, but apparently it’s not a software problem according to the Apple Tech I spoke to on the phone. It appears to be a hardware problem meaning I need to get a new phone. Thankfully, mine is still under warranty so I shouldn’t have to pay for the replacement, but still!
I could just about scream right now. AHHHHH!!!! A little dramatic? Probably, but you have to understand! I’m missing priceless moments here, people! Milestones and silliness that I’ll never be able to capture again. I’m now relying on my webcam to take still shots, but that’s not very much help. If you’ve used a webcam before, you’ll know what I mean. The picture quality isn’t the greatest and there’s a little lag time that mostly means I end up missing the moment anyways unless by some miracle I can get my toddler to sit still for 3 seconds. Something’s gotta be done ASAP, like yesterday!
How is any mom supposed to work under these conditions? One of the joys of being a mom is capturing those little moments when your child does something new, experiences something for the first time, or does something that’s outright silly. I hate missing out on this. I finally realized how much I’ve been missing out on when I was going over recent pictures. The last time I really took any pictures of my daughter was on her birthday, and they were very few. Thankfully, my husband has been taking some pictures here and there when he’s around, but that’s limited too. After looking at the photos from January and one we took just this past week at Hershey Park, I was astonished at how much she’s changed in what seems like such a short period of time. She’s such a little lady now and with a spunky personality to boot. I feel like kicking myself for allowing so much time to go by and letting so many precious moments slip through my fingers. BAD MOMMY!
There’s only one thing left to do, get my stinking iPhone fixed, repaired, replaced, WHATEVER! It just needs to work again.
