Day 37 of the selfie challenge: 365 Days of Momma
It’s Sunday! AND! I have the day off!!!!
That’s right, its my weekend off… I firmly believe that having to work every other weekend makes me that much more appreciative of the ones I have off.
This morning Liam took off after breakfast, grabbed a book and his teddy bear, and then proceeded to set himself up on the couch next to me to “study” with me. That’s right, I used the “s” word. Someone though it would be a brilliant idea to take a full course load in the summer during the most gorgeous weather of the year because the semester is shorter and it would be nice to just get the work done with. The same someone is now incredibly worried that maybe, just maybe, she might not be able to keep up. I don’t know who comes up with these brilliant ideas but they probably should have less of them.
So the adorableness ensued this morning and Liam and I studied together for about 10 minutes before my urge to snap a picture completely overcame me. Of course as soon as I picked up the camera phone he had to climb into my lap to get it…. The result is this:
Today’s selfie is less of me and more of us, but it is an awesome memory that I want to hold on to…. especially with the puppy photo-bomb in the second shot!
I do promise an update soon on my personal progress towards self acceptance of myself in photographs. This project has turned into more than I originally planned. What started out as something that was just for me has also evolved into a mechanism to show Liam my memories from his early childhood.
