The FIFTH Anniversary | Mommy and Me Monday | 262nd ed


It’s been FIVE years since my very first Mommy and Me Monday post. Five years of making sure I’m in the picture (no matter how terrible) with my girls. Five years of encouraging other moms to do the same.

Every week for five years I attempt to get a picture of me with at least one of my girls. Sometimes, I break the rules and let the husband have the post (hello, Father’s Day), and one time, I did actually (understandably) miss my Mommy and Me Monday post.

This week, Mr. Serious was out of town during the week for work, and then again for the weekend at a retreat. So, there was a lot of mommy and me time.

{We were learning about Emperor Penguins!}

After four nights of solo mom duty (I don’t know how so many of you do it every single day!), we were all super happy to have him home for bedtime. Not happy enough for everybody to smile, so there might have been some silly raspberries involved.

It’s not always about the perfect picture! It’s just the picture. Capturing it and having that little slice of digital proof to remind us of a memory!

I hope you’ll join in. If you haven’t been around for a while, here’s a little trip down memory lane.

Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.*
