Mango Lost It

We have been home for about 3 weeks.

It's been nice getting back into the swing of things and with all the summer activities the kids have, it feels like there has been little rest.

Fortunately I took a lot of wonderful pictures in Japan with my lovely camera that HWMNBN gave me for X-mas.

Mango also took a ton of pictures with a camera given to him by his paternal grandpa just before we went on our trip. Everywhere we went, Mango was snapping away with his camera.It felt as though every time I wanted to snap a shot of him, he was snapping a shot of something else.
He actually got a lot of really great shots.
And by the time we got home, Mango had personally taken about 1500 pictures. Which he scrolled through and manipulated for hours...
Then... he deleted them.

1000 of them to be exact.

With a few clicks of his keys and a major lapse in judgment, Mango "accidentally" deleted 1000 of the photos (taken at the beginning and middle of our trip)

It was a totally "Mango-ish" thing to do (given that he often does things without thinking of the ramifications), and once my irritation (and panic) subsided, I felt kinda bad for him...

Poor Mango...he really lost it...1000 "it's" to be exact.


  1. oh no!! what a bummer. at least he got to look at them and enjoy them ... for a second ;-)

  2. Hey, check the trash for your photo application. I've done that and was able to retrieve them. I hope you can, too!

  3. It's moments like those that I want to toss my computer violently out the window. I hope he handled it better than I would have.

  4. Oh no!!! People make fun of me for never erasing pictures off my memory cards...I am afraid of that very senario!

  5. oh no! i actually just had my heart beat really fast... and it wasnt even mine!

  6. Thanks for the suggestion Lynlilu...HWMNBN is a computer guy and after looking for the photos for about an hour he said Mango did a REALLY good job of deleting the photos...they would be nearly impossible to retrieve!


Quit lurking and drop me a comment...Puhleeeeze!
