Camp Mom and Dad

Every day, mothers like me check the camp website multiple times looking for newly uploaded camp photos. Dads don’t realize the website exists – they think the camp photos we show them just magically appeared. While looking at the website, squinting because perhaps we need reading glasses but don’t get them (or perhaps because the photos are so damn small), the photos are scrutinized. Mothers question how happy their child looks. We wonder how other children get the inappropriate clothing they’re wearing and we wonder why their mothers let them take those tight,low-cut crop tops to camp. And even worse, we worry that our children have been carried off by a bear with no staff noticing, if the children haven’t appeared in a photo that day (or for several days). Panic sets in.

Where's Waldo?

Where’s Waldo?

Of course I’m not this mother. Okay, I am. But it got me wondering what would happen if the kids got to peruse a website each day to see what their parents and siblings were up to at home. So we prepared our own gallery so our children could see what they missed out on while they were frolicking in the lake, running the relay race, and learning how to cook gluten-free. Just like camp photos, there would be tags for each category.
