Every Thursday I participate in a weekly challenge to make sure that I am in more pictures with my kids. (Click here to see some of my past posts.) And I am loving this challenge. I know that I will never revert back to my old ways of only photographing my kids.
But nearly every week, I complain about how I look in the photo. I generally say something like "this isn't the best photo of me but at least I'm in it." It got me thinking about what I do consider to be "the best photo of me."
Of course, I don't actually think I look great in the following photo. It was a ridiculously hot and long day at the animal park. But the photo was taken by Jack. He was two years old at the time. I was mid-sentence and probably asking him to quit fooling with the camera and to keep up.
I guess what I love about this photo is that this is how Jack saw me, his mama.
If your kids don't have a camera, it's high time to get them one. No, the quality isn't great but I love seeing the world through their eyes. For the longest time nearly all of Jack's pics were his feet and Logan's were of the ceiling or sky. Luckily they've gotten a bit better as the years have gone on.
My 52 Week Challenge post will be a bit late this week. I hope to get a pic of me and the boys tomorrow...but I'm sure it won't be half as special as the one Jack took of me almost 2 years ago.
