When I saw that Theme Thursday this week is Mom-themed, I realized that I have exactly ZERO pictures of me with all 4 kids. We have taken ONE family picture since the twins were born, but apparently one of the babies is invisible in that picture because someone commented on my 3 little ones!
So here's a picture of me with my FOUR little ones - can you spot them all?
Hint: It's not hard.
So I set out to master the self-timer and document the "Mom" that I am, tandem babywearing and all! John Paul chose to accessorize his robot costume with red pumps, as any fashionable 3-year-old would. For some reason the picture ended up EXTREMELY over-exposed (and I don't know why, because the set immediately before was fine, just out-of-focus), so I had to add a lot of shadows...
As a bonus, that painting over the mantle is one of my grandmother (my dad's mom) when she was a kid!
And then they asked all the teachers at school to have someone take a picture of them reading to their kids.
Someone = self-timer. I love that Cecilia is kissing Mary Claire's hand!
But it seemed weird to be taking pictures of myself... Here's MY mom! She comes and helps out with the kids and reads to them and love love LOVES them!
And ah, that proud Grandma look - there it is! This woman loves her grandchildren with a SERIOUS ferocity!
