Mommy Barbie Photobomb

I have no idea when this photobomb happened.

Clearly, that’s me, the dark form sitting there in front of the computer.  I can see the frames of my glasses. That’s my hair.

Maybe I’m bent over tending to my son?

Bent over talking on the phone (which is next to our computer)?

Adjusting my socks?

Clearly, though, I was not paying attention as my daughter swooped in for an impromptu maternity photo shoot with her Barbie doll and our Photo Booth application on our computer.

Normally, just before a photo is taken, there’s an audible countdown warning one to focus and smile. I have no idea why I didn’t hear it or notice.

But I did notice this photo now, along with several other hilarious images, as I cleaned up and organized my computer files last night. There were no images before or after this one for more context.

Just a random photo of a random moment.

I love that my kids are so silly.

I love that capturing these little moments are so easy now, thanks to modern technology.

I’m weary that capturing these little moments are so easy now, thanks to modern technology. Do you see the state of my family room in this image? Cereal on the coffee table. A Barbie pile on the couch. Stuffed animal. Crumbs.

A random bar stool next to the couch?

But then I remember … that bar stool was used to build a tent out of pillows and blankets.

This is a photobomb, but it shows my kids playing and using their imaginations, having the time of their lives despite the messy family room and a distracted mother.

And I love it.

Another lovely discovery.
