Comment of the Week

“Good article. I both love and loathe this app. I have not curated my photos at all. When my kids were growing up, we shared the same folder for photos, so I still have all of their youthful perspectives on trips we took, random things we found, funny little photos from a childlike view. So I love it for this mindtrip into the past. But I also loathe it. My kids are older: not old enough to understand the world independently but not young enough to share my iPhoto app anymore. Life is at a crossroads for me as a parent, and I sometimes loathe the photo reminders of this lost past. Both tears of joy and of sorrow.

-It can be hard. Hang in there and know that without the sorrow there is no joy.
