It’s been awhile since I’ve done a VMIM and frankly it’s because I lost interest in the images of mothers out there. But today, I happened upon my own bathroom and thought the below pic was a fitting image that sums up motherhood. Even when you are alone in the bathroom, you are not alone. Someone is always monitoring you, even if it is a creepy cabbage patch doll. It’s just a little reminder from my daughter that wherever I go, she will be there.
actual phrases spoken to my daughters…
