I came across this article today when a couple of people posted it on Facebook from the Huffington Post. I'm so glad I read it, this is exactly what I needed because I can relate so much. It will just take a moment to read, you'll be glad you did.
The Mom Stays in the Picture
By Allison Tate
All I could think of was how much I wish I were in more pictures now. I was able to scrounge up a few and decided to share them, to keep me accountable and as my first attempt to "be in the picture". From now on and not going to let myself feel ashamed about what I look like in the picture because my sweet girls don't care and wont care when they're older. They will just be happy to see me with them. Here are some pictures at weights I'm not proud of, hair not done, no make-up on, post baby acne and all. These are REAL pictures, pictures of me adoring my children. In this moment I couldn't be more proud of these pictures because moments were captured that I want my girls to be able to hang onto and share for years to come.
