Paparazzi parents

This morning, our children had a Christmas concert at their school. I'm all for having pictures of these events, but I think things have gone a little too far. Consider this:


Parents rush to the front to get the best possible position. Their iPads, cell phones, and video cameras record every waking moment. Flashes go off as if a celebrity has just emerged on a perp walk. Some parents seem so concerned about taking pictures and recording that they miss the actual experience of being there. Here was my view:


I gave up trying to even get one decent picture. And then on the way out of the school, one woman cut me cut me off with their stroller.

The experience soured my whole day. Parents, you disappoint me.
