So I just got back from a fun weekend and was looking through photos of the weekend and realized that there was one picture of me. It was one at the parade where I handed the camera to Ed and said, "Can you take a picture of me with the boys?" I have spoken of this phenomenon to many mommy friends...how we, as moms, are rarely in photos...most often it is a good thing or a choice because I am rarely happy with photos of myself, but sometimes when I take it in and think about how in 30 years when the boys look back they will only know that I was behind the camera, it makes me sad. So I am vowing to ask Ed more often to take more pictures with me in them...not because I want pictures with me in them...but because the boys might want them ...someday.
This is a blog I follow often and today her post made me smile because I just had a similar conversation with my mom recently. And had just been thinking about how I am not in any of the pictures from the weekend. I still have my two classes to take at the camera shop where I bought my new camera and I am hoping Ed comes along so that he can learn how to use it too!
