Mommy and Me Monday

I found this really great idea for a Monday blog hop.

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn at Really, Are You Serious?

This is why the Host Krystyn at Really, Are You Serious? started it and I think we can all relate:
"Recently, when looking for a picture of myself for my profile, I realized I had almost none of them. Then, my mom came into town, and finally captured a good picture showing that “mommy really does exist.”

I learned I wasn’t alone. So many other moms commented that they weren’t in picture, either. In fact, they were missing from photo albums and scrapbooks, too.

Too often, we are the ones behind the camera instead of in the pictures. We capture all of the moments with our kiddos, but almost none with us.

So, I am starting up a “Mommy and Me Monday.” I am challenging you to get at least a picture of yourself with you child, or children once a week. Then, on Mondays, you post that “Mommy and Me” picture with or without a story or fun anecdote about you and that child (not necessarily relating to the picture, just about you and the subject of that picture).

Of course, I know we all aren’t mommies…post pictures of you with your furbabies, or dads if you are the ones typically armed with the camera, let somebody else capture, you.

I also ask that you grab the code and post the button below. Then fill out the linky every Monday. That way, we can all say hi to the other mommies out there that aren’t photographed."

Here is my Mommy and Me:

 This was taken at Jessica's party on Saturday. She had been playing in the dirt and was showing me her hands. My dad was testing out his new camera. So with him around I will probably get more photos taken now. Most of the time I am not really happy with the photos taken. Hope you can find some great photos. At least this will give you a reason to actually do it.


  1. that is a sweet mommy/daughter moment. :) i love when real life is caught like that!

  2. That's a great picture for a great blog hop! But at my place there's a reason I'm always happy to be the one taking the pictures... I can't stand seeing photos of myself!! x

  3. I understand completely. I am never happy with my photo's either. But I am getting better at having them taken, cause most of the time when I try to hide they turn out even worse. lol Plus I would like my kids to have some of me for when I am gone.

  4. Such a lovely "real" moment...dirt and all! I love it!

  5. Great picture! This is my first Mommy and Me Monday also :)

  6. I totally agree... but I must admit somedays I don't mind not being in photos :)

  7. Looks like she's loving his new camera, too!  Thanks for joining in.

  8. what a great idea! I do take pictures with my kids, but end up deleting them because I don't like the way I look in them. I'm working on letting go of this so I can prove to my kids that yes I was there with them!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. I really appreciate it. Looking forward to reading what you think. God Bless
