The other side of the camera - School morning

Forever In Blue Jeans

I'm participating in what I think is a really smart weekly challenge hosted by Carin at Forever in Blue Jeans. It seems like mamas spend an awful lot of time behind the camera. The idea of this challenge is for mamas to get on the other side of the camera in at least one photo a week.

When my boys grow up they'll inherit hundreds of thousands of photos taken from their childhood, but how many of those will show their mama? At least for this year I can answer 52!

I'm usually pretty good about getting my one pic a week by Wednesday. But this week I was a slacker. Thursday morning and no photo to post.

So, the boys and I headed to their school. They go to a co-op nursery school held at a local park. All the moms have to work one day a week...except for me. I have two kids attending so I work every Tuesday and Thursday.

Before anyone else showed up for school this morning (and thought I was crazy), I grabbed a self-portrait with the boys.

I love those little muffins!

  1. That is my favorite picture of you three so far. I love it. They are both smiling so sweet and you look radiant. Are you getting some sun? You look glowing. Very nice picture. You totally need to frame that one. The boys eyes are just so sparkly.

  4. Great picture.

    I'd post more pictures of myself but I don't seem to translate well on film.

    Plus it would mean I'd actually have to brush my hair.

  14. I love being able to see the faces behind the blog - so cute! And what a great challenge for the mamas out there. Thanks for sharing!

  15. I know the feeling of other people thinking you're crazy while trying to get your face in a picture. Our self-consciousness is another reason we don't get in the photos too often. (and often delete the ones of us because we don't like how they turned out!) Good pictures!

  19. I love those "self-taken" photos with the kids. They're so fun because everbody's trying to crowd in to get the shot right and you're so close... great idea.

Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
Thanks!
