Here is me practicing what I preach: “Moms – Get in the picture!”
It might sound silly, but the number one issue most of us have, especially moms, is that we take tons of pictures of the people and things happening around us. But when we look back at the photos later we feel invisible… and when our kids look back at the photos they have nothing to remind them of the relationship they had with one of the most important people in their lives – their mom!
I don’t know about you, but the images that mean the most to me from my childhood tend to include the people who were the most important to me. I can describe these images to you without even thinking… the one where my dad was carrying me out of the ocean when I was 3… the one where my mom was looking back at me in a frame pack and we were grinning at each other when I was just a baby.
There are tons of photos of me alone as a baby and kid, and they are great to have, but the ones that show the relationships with those who loved me are the ones that mean the most – that I carry in my memory.
