Over at Pail, a news item was shared about moms not being in photos with their kids.
Let’s be clear – I do not have that problem!
Call me narcissistic or whatever, but I LOVE having my picture taken with Matthew and B. Being a SAHM, most of our “funnest” moments* happen during the day when B is at work, hence, no one is here to capture those moments on “film” (or on memory cards – HA!). I’ve mastered the art of self-photos and I take them daily. Most times, I’m unshowered, without make-up, in jeans and a t-shirt, and wearing a hat. I would call this, “my uniform.” Most pictures of Matthew and me together have me in “my uniform” and I wouldn’t have it any other way – because that is just how it is most mornings.
Showers are a luxury. Perfectly quaffed hair is a gift! Make-up beyond eyeliner and mascara is a novelty that usually signifies to B that he’s about to get lucky (if he so desires – HA!). But smiles and laughter with my family? Those are the norm around here and I insist on capturing as many of them as I possibly can!
Here are a few of my favorites. You’ve seen many of them before (because the narcissist in me posts them regularly**), but here they are in one spot. There are a few nuggets of tiny baby Matthew, which occurred before I was blogging!
* I hope you all know that I know that “funnest” and “funner” are not real words, but I like them!
** I actually post these photos on a regular basis because this blog is for Matthew, and I want him to see these photos of us together since I’ve failed at creating a baby book for him so far. Ugh!
