I have recently noticed quite a few blog entries about getting in the frame with your kids. Before reading these articles it was something I thought about every once in awhile, but there was always the ten million reasons why I don't get in the picture... I don't have any make-up on, my hair is a mess, I want to lose 25 lbs, and so on and so forth. But the truth of the matter is that after going through my own childhood pictures and not seeing my parents in them I am now going to make an effort to hand over the camera- no matter what I look like- and be a part of the picture and a part of the memory. The truth is your kids don't care about your hair and make-up or that you need to shed a few pounds they just want you to be there to laugh and play with them. So get in the picture! Years from now you will be really happy that you did.
