When Frigidaire asked me if I could talk about a do-over moment as part of their “Do-Over Moments” series, I knew right away I would talk about Sadie’s 2nd birthday party. It was a fun little party with all of our close family and friends, and everybody had a great time, including the sweet little birthday girl.
The problem? A total photo fail on my part. This picture is literally the only picture that turned out.
The party was at our house, so the week before I was busy getting the house and backyard in order. Sadie was also in love with Olivia at the time, so I stayed up late every night that week making adorable Olivia decorations for the party. By the time the party started, I was too tired and distracted to make an effort to take pictures.
|Took this picture the next morning!|
I made banners, pom-poms, garland and we had fun cut-outs of Olivia everywhere. I didn’t take pictures of any of it!
We dressed in coordinating outfits so we could take a fun family picture with Sadie. Didn’t do it. In fact, there is not one picture with me in it.
Right before the party, storm clouds rolled in, and made it pretty dark in the house and outside. So the pictures I did manage to take, are blurry. I was too tired to notice!
So, that is my do-over moment. If I could go back to that day, I would worry less about having the house perfectly clean and decorated, and focus on having fun with my family and documenting it with the camera!
I would love to have a picture of our family at the party, and a picture of Sadie and me together. One of Max and Sadie together, and one of her little face when she saw all the Olivia decorations and the bright red balloons we had everywhere.
Do you ever get caught up in the moment and forget to take pictures? Do you have a similar day or moment you want to do-over?
A note from Frigidaire:
The Frigidaire Gallery™Dishwasher gets dishes fully cleaned the first time, so there are no dish do-overs. Nearly half of adults admit to re-washing and/or re-drying dishes after the dishwasher cycle has been completed. To prevent dishwasher do-overs, Frigidaire® is stepping in with its new Gallery® Dishwasher featuring the OrbitCleanTM Wash Arm, ensuring dishes are cleaned right the first time.

Ah I have a similar regret for my girls’ 4th birthday last year. I made appliqued shirts to match their theme, and didn’t get a good pic of their outfits (tutus too!) together. Love the cute pic you did get of your little girl, and the color scheme!
