This One's For You, Kathy

I recently read a wonderful post at Kathy's Cottage about how some of us hide a little in our blog pictures, and we feel discomfort showing everyone what we really look like because we are so hard on ourselves. Oh yeah, called me out.

A lot of us are the family photographers, too. Aaaaaaaand usually the one person missing from the family scrapbooks. As Kathy puts it, our children appear to have grown up motherless. Guilty again.

So Kathy posted the most adorable picture of herself having a morning cup of coffee, just as if we were sitting at her table hanging out with her. I thought I would do the same. But I would have to take the picture on a day when I had my hair done and makeup on, and some cute pose. Wooooooooops. Not really in the spirit of Kathy's post, now is it? So I remembered that last year when we went to visit my dear mother in law for her birthday (on the 4th of July ~ isn't that cool!), I was sitting on the couch with the kids snapping off pictures of us goofing off like we were in one of those photo booths (I even had the pictures printed extra small so they would have that look in the scrapbook).

I think this is what I would love my kids to see most of all when they open our family photo books. I will have to do a photo booth session with them every year.

The pictures are sure to trigger warm memories for your children as the years pass. I don't have a single candid picture of me with my parents from my childhood. Bet most adults don't, but wish they did.
