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.
