Back in the Picture, Again

Wow! Since Carin stopped hosting the "Shoot Me" mom's back in the picture photo challenge, I realize I have slipped into my old ways of avoiding the camera.  The situation is certainly made worse by the fact that I don't necessarily want anymore pictures of me than absolutely necessary as my girth seems to be growing exponentially these days.  However, as I said when I joined Carin's challenge two years ago, (Click HERE to read about that) I do want my kids to know that in all this home school business I was actually here for their formative years.  In an attempt to not disappear into the wood work, I am going to try (here's the big little word) to return to posting pictures of mama (that would be me) on Thursdays.

It just so happens that Brianna has been taking a lot of pictures this week so I can get off to a good start.

19 Weeks (Yes, I know... could use my makeup... we take what we can get right now!)

Taking a break with Elisabeth to read one of our favorite books, The Bunnies Are Not In Their Beds  

Now, moms (that would be you!), get out there and get in the picture.  You will be so glad you did.  As I look back over the last two years of Bringing Mom Back, I am so filled with emotion as I recall the everyday things that would have been forgotten in the dark recesses of my mind, had I not risen to the challenge, put aside my desire to actually look my best in the picture and just handed over the camera.

Go ahead... give it a try... you'll thank me.




  1. You are glowing! Such an exciting time for you and your family! The new little one will love to see these pictures one day. :)

  2. Good for you for getting back in the picture. I did only one year of the challenge and when I look back at last year, I reverted right back to my old habits.

    You are going to love looking at pictures of your yourself throughout this next year....precious memories.
