Mommy and Me

Recently, when looking for a picture of myself for my profile, I realized I had almost none of them.  Then, my mom came into town, and finally captured a good picture showing that “mommy really does exist.”

I learned I wasn’t alone.  So many other moms commented that they weren’t in picture, either.   In fact, they were missing from photo albums and scrapbooks, too.

Too often, we are the ones behind the camera instead of in the pictures.  We capture all of the moments with our kiddos, but almost none with us.

So, I am starting up a “Mommy and Me Monday.”  I am challenging you to get at least a picture of yourself with you child, or children once a week.  Then, on Mondays, you post that “Mommy and Me” picture with or without a story or fun anecdote about you and that child (not necessarily relating to the picture, just about you and the subject of that picture).

Of course, I know we all aren’t mommies…post pictures of you with your furbabies, or dads if you are the ones typically armed with the camera, let somebody else capture, you.

I also ask that you grab the code and post the button below.  Then fill out the linky every Monday.  That way, we can all say hi to the other mommies out there that aren’t photographed.

    I realized this also on my own blog, that I have hardly any pics of me. I vowed to take pics with my kids no matter how I hideous I think I look- the 3 men in my life dont think that and STILL love me. Good idea!

    Great idea! I'm never in ANY of the pictures from family events! Often I just hand the camera to Hubby and demand him to take at least ONE with me in it!!

    Thank you for sharing your “be in a picture strategy.” I am never in pictures with my family because I am taking them and now I realize that that has to stop. I missed this Monday but I am putting it on my calendar and hope to join the families before me on linky.

    Thanks for this wonderful idea.

    Krystyn-Thank you for putting this together, such a wonderful idea. I just recently became aware that I have a lot of pics of everyone but me with my son and it made me sad. So I remembered this linky and was able to post this week, thanks to a snapshot taken by his teacher.
