Mom Blog Picture Fails.

July 17, 2017

Hey everyone!  It's Monday and on Monday's I like to try to share a mom or family post for Mommy Monday.  I don't always get around to posting one, but today I had an idea for a fun mom post.

  I'm not sure about you, but I spend a lot of time on social media looking at other people's pictures and I love it and hate it all at the same time.  I love getting inspired by other people's photos, but at the same time everyone on social media makes their lives look so perfect.  They post these perfect pictures of their perfect lives and for some reason we all feel like we need to keep up with that perfect image.  I'm defiantly guilty of that.  I don't want to share an ugly picture of myself, or talk about a fight I got into with my husband.  We only share the good. 

Recently, I was going through my pictures on my phone and deleting the photos I don't need when I came across some funny pictures that didn't really turn out so great.  If you're a mom and you have ever tried to capture the perfect picture with your little one, you know how hard it can be.  All those perfect moms with their kids didn't get that shot on a first try.  Trust me.  Today I wanted to get real with you and share some of my not so great mommy and me pictures with Jack.

I love this one.  It looks like he's trying to escape me, but I'm blocking the way.

Taking your own outfit pictures is not always easy when you have a clingy teething one year old. 

I hope you enjoyed those pictures as much as I did.  Do you have any photo out takes that make you laugh with your little ones?

  1. What fun pictures! Some of my favorite photos are the ones I almost deleted. It's fun to see and remember the reality of the moment, not just the picture-perfect version.

  7. Haha, I love that you shared these pictures! I have about a million of these, especially of my kids. I'm behind the camera saying, "I'll give you chocolate if you just smile!"
