Jeff and I took the kids to Palm Springs for the long weekend.

When I downloaded my photos from the trip, I found these:

I’m disturbed by these pictures for a few reasons.

  1. These pictures were taken on my camera by an unauthorized party.  In other words, I didn’t tell the culprit that he had permission to use my camera.
  2. These pictures were taken in my bedroom and I wasn’t in it.  My kids are not allowed in my room when I’m not present.
  3. Garrett is monkeying around on my chair in these pictures.  That’s forbidden.
  4. Emma is playing with my ipod touch.  Without my permission.
But, the thing that bothers me the most?

Where is their sense of self preservation?


They let their little brother take pictures of them getting into trouble?

What is wrong with these children?  🙂

  1. Not the camera AND iPod Touch!!! Oh man. I don’t blame you. I would be livid. Mommy’s toys are off limits!

  2. Umm yeah…someone didn’t think THAT one through. No more parties in mom’s room with all of her stuff!

  3. My Post is up for Wordful Wednesday… Thanks for your email. God bless always!

  4. Please delete my No. 5 linky… it was a mistake

  5. Now, THAT is funny. But now if these were my children, I would have broken their sticky little Wii fingers. j/k

  6. oh boy. They’re gonna get it! Woops!

  7. It’s kind of like Kids Watergate…except it’s in pictures….in California…with no politicians….


  8. Oh my! Oh my! some one got in trouble…jejejejej kids…♥

  9. I LOVE your chair!!!

    And the kids? That is hilarious!

  10. Yeah, you really need to teach them about self preservation.

    And they are totally, BUSTED! 🙂

  11. My kids would be in HUGE trouble for those infractions. Most especially my camera… it is my baby and anyone who touches it (besides me) is TOAST.

  12. LOL That’s so funny man.
    Sorry Angie, but that’s hilarious.

  13. BUSTED! But what I’d like to know did the photographer get in trouble too? I mean he did catch the other two doing family crimes, and more or less reported them to the authorities like a family police officer, so if the bad guys got in trouble then does the family snitch get in trouble? OMG I sound like my son. He was the family lawyer for my kids & always tried to get them out of trouble! LOL

  14. Ha Ha! Have you thought of giving them all camera’s for Christmas. Just think what you could find out!

  15. I can tell you why, they didn’t far enough ahead to getting caught.

  16. Give them time…….their still young. LOL!

  17. LOl, oh my gosh, that is hilarious!!!!!!! When the cats away the mice will play!!!

    I loved this!

  18. Uh oh … guess they’ll learn, right?
    Hugs and blessings,

  19. It’s what my grandmother would call “not wiping the crumbs off your mouth/face after stealing cookies from the cookie jar.”

  20. Busted Royally! LOL! No need for a nannycam when you have a tattletale photog! ha ha ha!

    LOVE THIS! Great post! And you daughter looks so innocent! lol

  21. What a turkey!! And did he not think about getting caught?!? LOL

  22. I think thats really funny too! Better they learn now the power of pictures than when they are teenagers. . . . this could be a valuable teaching moment 😉

  23. Oh, they’re so busted!

    I’ll be back in the morning to link up!

  24. Oh yeah! Busted! All of them! Wahahaa! (Trying the evil laugh there..is it working?)

  25. My kids totally sell each other out too!

  26. Oh boy! That’s unbelievable!! Actually, your post reminds me a little of the post I did a while back when I finally found my long-long water camera. Remember? The last pictures on the camera told the whole story…. It was great evidence!

  27. Holy stromboli! The nerve! The horror! The complete lack of fear at getting caught! You are too nice my friend. Fearful kids may not be better behaved kids, but at least the don’t get caught. What you don’t know won’t hurt you and all that!

    And, hope you don’t mind that I linked my photo contest this week…pictures and all:)

  28. What did they say when you showed them the evidence of their mischief?

    Seems they had a good time, too!

    • They were more interested in the pictures than what the pictures told me………which was trouble for them. 🙂

  29. sounds like someone is in T-R-O-U-B-L-E
    hows that I pod touch. APPLE Is an awesome company to deal with. Hope you haven’t had a trouble with it

  30. Maybe little brother thought it was worth it to use said camera w/o permission to snap other acts of wrong doing! 🙂 Too LOL funny!

  31. they are sooo busted!!! too funny!!!!Great pics!!!

  32. Oh, they are so in trouble, aren’t they?

    Why would they let that evidence be collected? Silly, silly, silly.

  33. Oh no….never ever let your brother get proof – and if he does, learn how to 1) erase pictures and 2) buy his silence

  34. OK…I do have to admit, I wish I had seen your face when you started looking at pics on your camera and discovered these!!

  35. I know if these were my kids I would probably be upset, but when I’m reading about it on someone elses post it made me snicker right out loud – LOL !! Someone didn’t think that one through !!

  36. Will gets a hold of my camera often and I find pictures of the ceiling of me in my pj’s!

  37. Now, that is seriously funny!!!!

  38. Desert Rose says

    Oooh…I would never allow pics to prove it! Lol
    Looks like they didn’t have a care in the world!

  39. Well, they’ll learn fast after this experience.

  40. Oh they left evidence?? Someone has to teach them the basics 😉 LOL

  41. Haha! You crack me up because that’s how I feel when I go through my pictures sometimes! LOL!

  42. They learn so young. Great pictures!

  43. I would be very afraid to go out of town when they are teenagers! On the upside they would probably take more incriminating photos of themselves, lol!

  44. coz their kids and they live in the moment! president’s weekend? i love seeing pictures from a kid’s perspective

  45. LMAO!! That’s hilarious! The young one has got the blackmail DOWN!!

  46. That is truly hilarious!!! I would be so mad too. It’s bad enough when they take my camera and my cell phone. You have much more expensive toys. 🙂

  47. LOL That is too funny! I’ve found a couple guilty photos like that on my camera as well and wondered the same thing…um, kids, didn’t you realize mom would eventually see this???

  48. So, how much trouble did they get in? Like is EVERYONE grounded?? Just curious for future reference, you know, when my kids pull a stunt like this because you know they will someday… 😉

  49. Must I tell you that this makes me laugh so and reminds me of the 3 bears 🙂 Someone’s been sitting in my chair. lol. I love it!

    And indeed, misdeeds must be documented and if you find a pic with a mirror in the background you can go all CSI and find out who was holding that camera! lol

    Happy Wednesday! 🙂

    • I love the imagery that your comment produced.

      TOTALLY like the three bears. And you are so right about the mirror. I actually have one so I know who the culprit was. 🙂

  50. You and I think waaaaay too much alike. That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking. Forbidden fruit, yes, sure, they are children, but PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE? What the HELL? lol

  51. That is hilarious – by all means try and push the envelope when mom’s not around, it’s age-appropriate and expected, but for god’s sake don’t leave photographic evidence behind – on HER camera!

  52. Oh O. A couple of someone’s are in big trouble!! I guess sometimes, you just have to learn the hard way!

    I love your blog layout!!

    Got an iPhone? Come join my new meme for favorite apps. every Monday @MommyWizdom

  53. Angie,

    I think maybe your young son has the upper hand. The older children may not have been a match for him. Blackmail anyone?

    Mom, do you romp on the furniture when alone in your room? Did your daughter learn the “right touch” on your ipod from you? Have you decided if all or just the photographed ones get in trouble? I wonder what they did that didn’t get photographed. Absolutely funny.

    • Oh……..there were about 20 photos. LOTS and lots of somersaults on the chair…….did you notice Emma’s hair? The best part? Grace was laying in my bed watching it all.

  54. Not good. I wouldn’t be happy if my kids were playing with my Blackberry so I know how you feel about your iPod. Cute pics though.

    Happy WW!

  55. Angie do you think little brother took the risk just to show you what the older ones were up to??? He could totally do undercover work for you….think about it , granted might want to give him his own disposable camera one that is under $10.

  56. hahaha, so funny! and they left evidence!

  57. Gives a whole different take on caught on film…..boy what were they thinking.
    Although it is funny, someone was blackmailing them. Hubby?
    My daughter and hubby are not allow to touch my cell or camera. they might break them and my is always consider better then theirs,lol. Mom’s Rule.

    My WW link for you

  58. Mom is going to have to get a little scarier!

  59. Some mommy possessions are sacred, cameras and iPods included. They are so busted…

  60. Got themselves caught red handed! LOL!

  61. Oh, they are SO busted! Did they get into a lot of trouble?

    Btw… love that chair!

    Justine 😮 )

  62. love it!!!

  63. Apparently they’re still young enough not to realize they’re creating solid evidence against themselves by taking pictures. SO busted! And too hilarious! 🙂

  64. I was cringing just seeing those photos! I wonder what the rest of the kids were up too during the photo shoot. Hopefully better things!

  65. those are some fab kids! so cute!

  66. So far my camera has never fallen into the wrong hands…you do get some interesting photos though it seems when it happens.

  67. My kids once stole my camera while I was napping and dressed the dog up to take pictures of him. It was too funny 🙂

  68. Oh my. Every once and a while I find a few pictures on our camera that are off odd things, with fuzzy focus, and that’s because Madaline has turned it on and just pushed the button. It’s kind of cute and kind of scary at the same time.

  69. Kids … too funny!

  70. What is that saying- when mama’s away the kids will play? looks like that is exactly what happened 😉

  71. Oh that is too funny!! lol

  72. HA HA HA HA

    The Buzz

  73. I can’t believe that they don’t know better than to leave evidence!! LOL — too funny! I love that chair — looks like a comfy spot for reading!!

  74. These are great shots..but it sure does implicate them..i was never lucky enough to have such evidence…LOL…EnJoY your day..!

  75. My 13 year old keeps cracking my laptop password. What is it with kids these days? LOL

    Happy WW!!

  76. Well, at least they didn’t put it on You Tube…. yet.

  77. someone is gonna get in trouble

  78. Lol! What I’d really like to see pictures of are their faces when you showed them these! Thanks for the laugh! 🙂

  79. LOL! Little stinkers who haven’t yet learned the art of the cover-up… 😉

  80. Your kids are bold!

    I’m participating in Wordful Wednesday for the first time. I linked up. Yay!

  81. That’s too funny! They should learn a lesson from this though…never leave the evidence behind!!!

  82. teehee that is too funny maybe he was just out to get them

  83. Oh, I just love it! Nothing like kids being mischeivous and not thinking it through. That is absolutely priceless. I would love for you to ask them and see what they say. And then show them the evidence. I always tell my kids they better tell the truth because I have hidden cameras throughout the house. That’s outstanding!!!

  84. Gasp……..that would be something my kids would do too!!!! LOL

  85. I have so many incriminating pictures, it’s not even funny! Your sense of humor has saved them, I take it? lol

  86. Sooooooo…they ratted themselves out by leaving evidence!

    Too funny!

  87. LOL I love that *someone* and if you’re like me it was your SO, thought to snap pics but not stop that monkeying around!

  88. They are totally busted!

  89. That doesn’t sound good! I hope they learn their lesson!

  90. MommyNamedApril says
  91. Uh-oh! They really messed up, didn’t they? You’ll have to let us know what kind of brilliant excuses they come up with!

    Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud

  92. busted!

  93. Looks like they’re having fun Mom, but I guess rules are rules.

  94. LOL!! Too funny! But, the sad thing? Same thing happens in my house!! And when I confront the culprit, I get the hem-hawing around, and the look of panic in their eyes trying to figure out a way out of it. It’s priceless! Well, as long nothing is broken, that is! lol

  95. Oh my – that’s funny. They’ve found a loop-hole in the “no tattling” rule! Don’t tell my kids.

  96. Cover your tracks children. If need be… burn your tracks. Big Brother (mama) is watching!:)

    Hugs and Mocha,

  97. Oh my…. this is so funny. Kids seem to be so clueless that they are getting themselves into trouble.

  98. Now that’s funny! They were obviously too busy doing things they weren’t supposed to be doing to pay attention to the fact that their pictures were being taken 🙂

  99. That was rather, ummm, un-smart of them. I sure hope you gave them a talking-to!

  100. Self-incriminating photos…that is hilarious. 🙂

  101. Playing along for the first time. Thanks for the fun!


  102. You do have to admit that one of him flipping into the chair is quite comical! Glad no one got hurt and nothing was broken!

  103. ouch. nice to have a weekend away though.

    my bloglines is not picking up any of my feeds for the last two days, any idea what’s wrong?

  104. I found numerous text messages sent out one night on my iphone and my girls know they are not allowed to touch it ever. Busted!!

    So hilarious!!

  105. DUH!!!

    You need to teach them some self-preservation skills!!!

  106. Now that is hilarious. Not that they are doing things that they aren’t supposed to b/c well, what kid doesn’t but that they are so going to get busted for this! Great post 🙂 You made me chuckle before bed 🙂 Take care!

  107. Hi! I just found you through Insights and Belly Laughs! I’m your newest follower.

    Isn’t it funny how our kids tell on themselves??? I’ve told my son that he is a terrible liar and should just give it up. Truthfully, I’m glad he can’t tell a lie and I hope it stays that way — of course, if my husband is any indication, I have NOTHING to worry about!

  108. bwahaha! I’m sorry! haha! I can’t stop laughing! hahaha!

    That is hilarious. haha!

    But wrong. Very wrong. *trying to not smile*

  109. ♥ I love it when they tell on theirselves! Even if it is in a picture!
