Some of you may remember this blog post about an article titled, "Mom Stays in the Picture". You can read that post HERE and the article HERE. If you haven't read the article yet, take a minute to click and read. I posted that after reading it I was a bit convicted at how many pictures of myself I delete or avoid being in.
I vowed to change that. And with the help of a dear bloggy friend, Melissa, I am. Since that article we have been occasionally taking photos of ourselves with our kiddos. We share them on facebook and tag one another. :) It always make me smile.
Our new thought is to be sure to take (or have someone else take) at least one picture a month of us with some or all of our children. At the end of the year, we can do a post on all of our Mom pictures.
Here is my first attempt at my January picture:
Here is my second attempt:
Thankfully right after taking this, our teenage neighbor came out to play in the snow and she was able to take a better one.
Finally, here is my January "Mom Stays in the Picture" picture:
So, are you up for the mom photo challenge? I really think your kids will thank you one day.
