This is a copy from my personal blog...because I'm LAZY like that. ;o)
My wonderful friend Melissa over @ The Zookeeper's Diary (a must visit if you haven't already) participated in Julie's (from The Peanut Gallery...exit here...also a must read) Mom n' Me Monday. A fantastic idea if A) you're a Mom and B) you're the sole photographer in the family.
So, since I thought my kids were destined to grow up wondering where Mom was during all their trips, important times, and just hanging out...I guess I'll start having some proof that I wasn't just their personal chef and photographer.
Not that I mind...but maybe it'll be nice to see myself years from now and think "Wow, you look pretty good as your pre-Botox-Juvaderm-Restalyn self!"
I have enough on my plate to worry about what bad things I'll pass along to my daughter, I don't want (body) image issues to be one of them.
So, since I don't know when was the last time I took a photo with my kids (which almost always involves you seeing my arms outstretched as I hold the camera)...here's one with Kaia, my eldest, taken while goofing off with our brand new toy (an iMac) in October '09.
I swear...this girl freakin' rocks. She's got an empathetic heart of gold. A sense of humor that is beyond her years. A memory that's going to bite me in the butt in a few years...
And a smile that continually melts my heart and reminds me why it's so awesome to be her mom.
