Do you ever wonder what life was like before electricity?
It must’ve been really hot, and boring, and hard, and lame.
You know people did it, because obviously they had to.
But, don’t you just like feel sorry for their misfortune to have been born in the dark ages? And so totally fortunate to have not been subjected to that hot, laborious, decent entertainment devoid hell on earth?
Yeah, that’s just exactly how I feel about Instagram (follow me as @dumbmom).
Clearly I know what life was like before I came out of the Blackberry ages and discovered it, but all I can manage is a vague recollection.
Sorta like life before kids.
Like I know I lived it, and I know Dumb Dad and I were together then, but I just can’t recall what we did, or even what we talked about before The Dudes exploded onto the scene.
Everything was just so much less exciting and full and memorable then.
Life is just better with Dudes. And electricity. And INSTAGRAM!
So I use it a lot.
Quite possibly to excess.
I use it to capture The Dudes…
And wildlife (clearly it’s wild life season where I live as the critters are coming out of the woodwork lately and The Dudes don’t let any of it go unnoticed)…
And happy moments when I get invited to come on local TV news-for-fun shows and talk to a couple of cool ladies about baby gear…
Most of which you can win right here if you’re into that, incidentally.
The rest of the images are pretty self explanatory (except for the Dumb Dog one; there is no explanation for dog in bed and she knows it!), but maybe a little backstory will help with that last one.
