If you asked your kid, right now “What do I do for a living”, what would they say?
Go on, ask them. I’ll wait.
Wait a minute. Wake them up again and ask them to tell you what you REALLY do?
And I’m not talking about the 3,781 job titles of a parent such as; chauffeur, servant, clothes washer, chef, tutor. The list goes on.

I wasn’t sure if it was their age or the fact that I take my camera everywhere but The Kids, especially Artemis, are less then amused at having me take pictures of them.
Everywhere. All the time. Always.
To add insult to injury, I like close-ups. Macro is my best friend. So they pretty much live with a lens two inches in front of their face. It could be worse, they could have inherited unfortunate looking feet.
Oh. I’m sure they’ll turn out okay.
Then I got to thinking, maybe they think that everyone’s life is like this or maybe they know more. Maybe they know that sometimes there is a reason for all my pictures. Otherwise known as “Journeys of The Zoo”.
I mean, they know my full name and usually call Ed, Eddie. Note that Ed’s Mother and The Kids are the only people that can get away with calling him that and even then…
So, for the sake of
a blog post The Kids development, I thought that I would take an unscripted video and put them to the test.
This is how it went.
What Do Your Kids Know What You Do For a Living?
P.S. Have you noticed that I haven’t used
strikethroughs for a while?
