I’m stunned and overwhelmed and cheered and heartbroken and filled with joy over the response to my post about being missing from my children’s childhood.
But I’m not surprised, not really.
We mums have been missing from family photos for years and years and it’s time we jumped back #inthepicture. Being insecure and self-conscious and shy just isn’t a good enough reason to go missing from our children’s memories. Our kids don’t care and we are right there anyway, just as we are.
I didn’t quite know how to say THANK YOU to all the wonderful mums who have uploaded their photos to #inthepicture so far… so I made you a little video.
I get goosebumps when I see all the shining mums in this video. I get goosebumps and I’m grateful.
Are you getting #inthepicture?
