I recently read this piece on "mom staying in the picture." I've got to say, the piece resonated with me. I don't like pictures of myself. Honestly, my first reaction is usually something along the lines of, "Wow, I didn't think I looked that bad." How awful is that? When am I going to learn to stop being so mean to myself? Anyway, I liked what the author wrote and I feel the same way: I want my kids to know that I was there. I want to them to have pictures of me as a young mom--ponytailed hair, stained clothes, baggy eyes, and all. So the other day when Asher started snapping selfies on the bed, I let him take some with me, too. And I'm actually posting them, even though the quality isn't great and I don't look awesome.
