Earlier this month an article written by Allison Tate went viral. The article was about how mom’s need to stay in the picture and not be afraid to get in the picture with their children.
I read the article and realized how important it is for me to take pictures with my children. My body may not be perfect and I am definitely not the skinniest mom on the planet. I am a tomboy at heart which is why more often than not you can find me in a pair of jeans and sneakers. At home I’m always in a pair of sweat pants and a t-shirt, but this is me, this is who my kids see on a daily basis and they love me. This is why I should always remember to be in the picture!
Yesterday my little one was sick and of course that meant I had to stay home with her. I haven’t slept in about two days and I just crashed with her on the couch. My boyfriend took a picture of us and normally I would be so upset because here I am passed out after not sleeping and taking care of sick child and I look horrible and on and on. The fact is that, this is our life, this is how we look after not sleeping and taking care of a sick child and these moments should be documented as well.
The Mom Stays In The Picture is the article that inspired me to realize the importance of staying in the picture. It’s a great article and it’s not meant just for mom’s all people that are the main picture takers in the family need to realize how important it is to stay in the picture!
