Here are a couple of pictures I found in my camera from last weekend. Not one picture of me and the kids together for Mother's day. Sigh. I have this *really* bad habbit of jumping out of the way when anyone points a camera at me. In the moment I am thinking - akk, no make-up, bad hair, double chin, wrong outfit, 30 extra pounds, akkk!! But then I go around all the other blogs and see lovely pictures of mother's and their kids. The pictures are not perfect (ok, seriously some of them ARE close to perfection ...) but it does capture the moment. I am going to try and break this habbit because I want lots of pictures of me and my family! Now I just need to re-train my husband (who happens to have a photography degree) to include me in the picture. It's not his fault - for years I've been telling him to stop pointing the camera at me!
(I wish I could crop that guy's butt and hand out of Naomi's headshot)
