I’m in the Picture!

If you do anything today, please read the article The Mom Stays in the Picture by Allison Tate today on Huffington Post. This was shared with me by one of my best friends and an amazing mom, Alyce!

I don’t know about you, but I am usually the one behind the camera. When I go to find photos of the entire family, me included, they are few and far between. We need to make more of an effort to get IN THE PICTURE! Our kiddos won’t care in 10, 15 or 30 years if their mom’s hair was perfect, make-up was done or they were in picture perfect clothes. They will just be happy to see pictures of them having fun and being with their mom!

So I have shared some pictures, I can’t believe some of these I’m putting out for the entire world to see ~ lol, of my kiddos and I having fun. They LOVE to take pictures of themselves using Photo Booth on the computer. As you can see, a couple of times I jumped in there to have fun with them!

Don’t you just love our Facebook pouts?! I would love for all you MOMS to share a picture of you WITH your kiddos on the Super Coupon Lady Facebook Wall!!

Would LOVE to hear your thoughts about this article, let us know in the comments below!

I love them! I do this too with my 10 year old daughter. I have to find one to post on your wall.

This is so true ladies. My mom has been gone for eleven years & i have two pictures of her. I wish I had many more.

Adorable!!!! I bet the kiddo’s loved this!

These pictures are so cute! And what a great thing. I’m usually the one taking the picture, too, but sometimes I take the time out to get in the picture with them 🙂

This is such a great point! I need to start doing this more!

I love that blog entry! And you look so cute with your kids! I have to do this more!

I’m always behind the camera too… pictures of me are few and far between… but I’m okay with that 😉

I saw this yesterday (or this morning?) and thought it was adorable. I wanted to do it but I kept getting preoccupied with other stuff. I will be doing it ASAP though, it looks like you guys had a blast. 😀

I would love to be in more photos but there is usually nobody to TAKE them. My husband won’t touch my camera with a ten food pole and I’m way too timid (HAHAHAHA – YEAH RIGHT) to ask a complete stranger to take my picture. I should step it up. I’d like a few pictures of myself too!

It’s definitely a big goal for this year to get more pics with me in them too!

I am so tough on myself about my looks that I HATE being in pics, but every now and then I think if I was my child when I passed on how sad would it be to have NO pics of my mom. That puts my butt in perspective, and every now and again I pop in a silly pic with the kids!
