Better Mom Day 6: Be in Pictures

If you're new to the 31 day series, over 1200 bloggers have chosen a theme they want to write about every day in October ranging from food or fashion to faith or fabric.  See the whole list atThe Nester.  I decided to focus on trying to be a better mom, and you can see my first post here.

Day 6: Be in Pictures

More than once I've read about the importance of making sure your own face gets in front of the camera now and then.  We're usually the ones behind the camera, trying to catch adorable moments of our little ones, milestones and performances.  I agree that it's good to have ourselves documented in the process too.  It will let our kids look back and see us smiling with them...along with watching the phases of different hair styles, and yes, how we grow older :)

Here's one I took of me and the two younger ones (the oldest was out on a day-date with dad) while we were out on a walk.

We'd tried to find some great fall colors...but I think the extra sunny and dry summer/fall here has delayed it some (I'm not complaining--we've had weeks of great weather!)  

For your dose of creativity today, head over to See Vanessa Craft where you can see what part of my house looks like this--and check out the other days in her series so far!


  1. I need to do this more often, I'm rarely in pictures.

  2. You look fabulous, and your kids are DARLING! It is a great reminder for sure though. You are exactly right, we should be in more photos with our kids :)

  3. Normally I hardly understand publish on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do so! Your composing taste has been surprised me. Thanks, quite excellent material.Independent Escorts in Dwarka, Dwarka Escorts Service, Female Escorts in Dwarka | Independent Escorts in Dwarka, Dwarka Escorts Service, Female Escorts in Dwarka, Escorts in Dwarka
