I got the idea for “Click” moments from a mystery series that my daughter read called Cam Jansen. The main character is a detective and she has a photographic memory. She says “Click” when she wants to remember a scene from a case.
I find that although I am not a detective, I am a mother, and there are certain moments I want to remember in my mind forever. When I see those special moments, I literally say “Click” and then take a mental picture. Like when …..
Elle blew bubbles for the younger ones to chase.
I came home to find Chad and the kids snuggled on the couch reading (and all the kids were bathed!)
The kids were playing and getting along on the tramp. There were giggles and no tears…for a moment.
I looked out the window on a Sunday and saw Elle and Crew sitting on a blanket together. They were making a list of all the places they wanted to go on a mission.
(I love that China is on the top of Crew’s list, followed by Saint George.)
I am happy I got some actual ‘clicks’ in, but when I don’t have a camera handy saying “Click” helps cement the family memory in my mind. Sometimes I even share these “click” moments with the kids at dinner instead of my High-Low-Uh. I want them to know I notice them. I am confident I will get to develop all of my mental pics at a Costco in the clouds someday.

Okay once again you made me cry. Thanks for blogging Tiff- it was made for you. The world is a better place today because of rasinglemons.com. I love you!
I love that your kids love to read and I love that Elle is a little mother and I love that Croft is so independent and I love that crew is a tender heart and has excellent penmanship and I love that Locke is the best cuddler with the best giggle ever. Thanks for sharing your “CLICKS” for everyone else to enjoy!!!
Cute blog post!!
Question: Do you have any suggestions for a family photo album/storage system? A photo album a year? Or, do you scrapbook? Photo boxes? Have back up copies?
Sterling and I are coming up on our one year anniversary (can’t believe it)… and I’m trying to figure out the best way to keep track of all of our pictures. I figured you’d be the best person to ask! So, any ideas?
I too love your blog Tiff! Cute pics 🙂 I like all your clicks above….you are an amazing mom. I need to get with it!
