Embrace the Camera

I've become one of those moms, you know, the one that's obsessed with getting a "good" picture of her family.  And I fail.  Miserably.  I also have very few pictures of me (or my hubby) with the kids.  I don't want to look back in 10 years or more and wonder if my kids had parents or if they were left to their own defenses.  So I've decided to make a more conscious effort to include myself and hubby in pictures of our kiddos.  Sure my hair might be a greasy mess, or my face lack make up.  I'm probably going to be in pajama pants and tee shirts, but that doesn't mean I don't care.  In 10 years I'll probably think my skin looks great and un-wrinkled and I'll laugh at my dated hairstyle, but my kids will see the mom who loves them and was present in their daily activities.  So here is my first picture:

her hat just kills me, so adorable

I learned about this idea from Emily Anderson at the The Anderson Crew.  Emily hosts Embrace the Camera every Thursday and this is my first time joining in.
