52 Weeks, My Kids and Me – Week 1

Grace’s post about the 52 weeks, my kid(s) and me flickr group fired a synapse in my scattered brain that said, Oh yeah, I’m supposed to be doing that… So, I thought I’d try to get a shot of the three of us today. Of course, it’s (ice)rainy here and grey so that meant we needed to use the studio. Did you see Grace’s photo? Do you see how calm her kids look. I took a bunch of photos and most of them looked something like this:

Outtakes for 52 Weeks, My Kids and Me (Week 1)

I had a vision and that wasn’t it. Oh, well, I guess being a Mama is taking what you can get sometimes. And sometimes what you get isn’t what you wanted but maybe it’s something better and more real anyway. Have a great weekend friends.

    You know we have a tripod and a remote trigger, you didn’t have to hand hold. Now everyone thinks Tristan has a HUGE head.

    Ummm, yeah… I think I might have invited both you AND Grace to that group, because I think it’s such a great idea… and I still haven’t done it either. Today, I promise.

    And I actually LOVE that one on the top right! I would add it.
