As someone who was the only child in the family, I had always thought that having a few brothers would make my life way more fun. Sara Easter, a photographer from Arlington, Texas, has been documenting the day-to-day life of her three sons (4,7, and 9), and her candid shots only support my childhood fantasy. Of course, what is "fun" to a kid, often means something else to their parents.

"At this point the boys are pretty immune to my picture taking," Easter told Bored Panda. "I photograph them almost daily so they hardly even notice me doing it anymore. It's just a thing [their] mom does."

"I started taking pictures of my boys for the same reasons every parent does. I just wanted to remember what they were like," Sara said. "I gave up taking posed pictures of my boys pretty quick for that same reason. I didn't always see who they really were in those photos (although I do very much value portraits and love to have those as well). I wanted photos of them doing what they normally do, being themselves because that is what I really want to remember."

Seeing how quickly her kids change really motivates Sara to continue the series. "I'll look at photos from a year ago and not only will my kids look different but their toys, rooms, activities, and mannerisms will have changed. I'm constantly trying to catch who they are before they change again." A well documented and accurate portrayal of their childhood is what the mom constantly strives for. "I want them to have something of themselves to share with their kids and grandkids. But most importantly I want them to be able to see themselves how I see them through these photos. They are wild, creative, funny, kind, loving, generous, silly and smart. I hope they can see all of that reflected through the way I photograph them."

I hope this is dirt because my friend's kid did this with poop. she didnt know where to start with cleaning him, she was abit consoled that it was his own poop....I think i would dig a hole in the yard put him in and hose him from there to avoid poop getting everywhere.

Yet another wonderful enjoyment my husband and I carried over to adulthood. I bought him bubbles for his birthday last year. The kind for kids and the kind in a champagne bottle. The beauty of being old enough to appreciate both ;)

My personal favorite childhood spot to hide in hide-and-seek... my brothers couldn't fit but I could! Was great until the one time they forgot they hadn't found me yet, left me in a basement cabinet, and went to get popsicles...

You might consider promoting this picture to the kayak company. If they were smart, they would use this in their advertising campaign. It is a great shot and sends a fantastic message. You have fabulous talent (and cute, cute kids too!) Good for you all the way around :) :)

I used to play with toy guns, water guns, toy swords, etc. Nothing wrong with it as long as you teach your children that the real thing is dangerous and you take care of your child's mental health as well. It's all good fun when you're young.
