The Kids Get in the Picture


Many of you read the inspiring Huffington Post article by Allison Tate “The Mom Stays in the Picture“.  It’s a powerful message about how your children need pictures with you and they won’t care if you don’t have the right outfit, your hair is done or you have an extra five pounds.  Ms. Tate’s message strongly resonated with many of you for good reason. She is so right.

The Fall 2012 launch was a big day.  Big enough that I wanted my daughters there.  Will they remember a day at a warehouse?  Maybe my 3-year-old will.  But they will have these pictures and know they were there because their mom wanted them there.  And that we celebrated together.

Me "Let's take a picture!" My daughter "But I wanna dance!"

My daughter "Dancing is fun!" Me "Well, I suppose it is..."

Me "Let's dance it out!" My daughter "Duh Mom. That's what I'm doing!"

Fancy dance moves in a warehouse.

The baby is thinking "What the heck is going on here?!"

"The was awesome mom! High five!"

    Love it! My mom avoids the camera like the plague, I don’t have many pictures of her at all. 🙁

      Thanks Jame! I think a lot of moms (myself include) have moments like that. I just try to think about what my grandma told me “When you’re my age you’ll know that you looked great!”

  2. I’ve seen these photos on Facebook and they get me so excited, for you and for them. You are setting such a powerful example, but more than that, you are showing your daughters that they are important to you, and to your work. And simply, it’s just fun to dance it out. In a warehouse…even better!

      Thank you Angie! You really get it. I’m trying to do all those things – some days it goes better than others. 🙂
