When I posted about the very limited number of photos I have with my mom -- like one -- I hoped I would make a few people think and send a message to remind moms to get in the picture with their kids. Whether a child suffers a loss and wants to remember a parent holding them or just grows up and wants to look back on fond memories, as moms we tend to produce so much, we forget to co-star in the show.
Not only have I received several photos of mothers and children to post, I have read emails sharing incredible stories of happy memories, tragic loss and lots of nostalgia. It got me to thinking that I'm not ready to post the photos yet. I think this is bigger than one post... I think what we've got here could be a movement. Grab those kids and cameras, let's get everyone we know to stop and snap. I even created a button you can share on your blog to promote this. Can you imagine together how many moms we can reach and how many memories we can document, helping moms and kids everywhere remember the years that go by much too quickly.
Help me spread the word of my "Get the Picture" movement by posting the badge below on your own blog to get more moms to submit photos. Imagine the powerful collection of photos we'll have to share with the world!
PS: Don't worry, dads... you'll get your turn!
