Good enough | Mommy and Me Monday | 275th ed


Sometimes when you’ve been doing something for over 5 years, you lose a little gusto. A little of that kick in the pants that gets you excited to do something. This week, that happened with Mommy and Me Monday. We used to have 40 people participating ever week.

Do not interpret that to be anything less than love and appreciation for the people that are participating, it just has me less inspired I guess. Just me doing it is good enough.

But, here’s the thing. This is mostly for me and my girls one day and I share it here to remind other people to do the same. So people joining in is just a perk. The whole idea is that we are good enough just the way we are. Jump in those pictures; crazy hair, no make up, wrinkles and all (maybe that’s just me!). 

Sometimes this is all you haveSometimes this is all you have

Take and share a picture of you with your child/children. Capture a moment because they all happen and change so quickly! And, stop caring about how perfect it is, just do it. Whatever you get is good enough!

What were you up to this weekend?

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.*

  1. So true! Both the “just take the photos” and the it’s good enough if it’s just your post each week. I’m excited I found you were doing this. As part of my own scrapbooking & memory keeping for our family, I try to get in front of the camera whether it’s a selfie or literally sticking the camera in my husband’s hands and telling him to take a picture. I want to exist in the kids’ childhood albums too! Wanting to participate with M&MM has me inspired me to not only do so weekly but get a few more pages of their albums completed. Double win. So thank you for the inspiration! Hope your week is off to a good start. 🙂

  2. Bah, I love linking up but I’m so bad with time management lately! I even had a post in drafts for today. Next week, definitely! I’m so glad I found this linkup by the way. There are so many photos of me with my kids that are so precious to me, that I would never have taken if not for this linkup!

    1. I’m terrible at it lately, too! I’m trying to do 15 things and I only have time for 5! It’s bad!

      I seriously just put the linky up and I leave it open for a week, so hit publish when you get a chance and come link up!

      I’m so glad you found it and it’s encouraged you to link up!

  3. Mr. Serious says:

    Your “good enough” is pretty great.

  4. Yeah, I like that “crazy hair, no make up” thing you post and it inspire me to post my own “crazy-hair-no-make-up” photo. It’s what being a mom is sometimes. 🙂

  5. pat chance says:

    I agree with Mr. Serious.

  6. Heard that. We are good enough. I’m sorry I haven’t been jumping in as much… I’ve been remembering to take photos and then I don’t do anything with them but look at them!

  7. I so need to start doing this link up. One of my goals is to actually get INTO the pictures with my boys instead of just being the one behind the camera. This is just the extra push I need.

  8. This WILL be (and already is) such a great legacy for your girls to see you in so many pictures with them. 🙂

  9. I am SO glad you started Mommy & Me and have continued to do the posts over the years. My new boss doesn’t block blogs so I should be participating more regularly now. Yay!
