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.
Visual Moments in Motherhood January 12, 2011
To make my blog more equal opportunity for you visual learners out there, I now include a weekly post of an image that comes up when I google “mother images.” Because I am well-read and classy I then enlighten you by interpreting how the image captures real moments in Motherhood.
There is nothing better than baby snuggles–even when your baby looks like a porcelain doll that your Great Aunt orders you from the Home Shopping Network. The snuggability factor is one of babies’ best survival mechanisms. Their use of the technique only becomes more selective as they learn how to best manipulate the balance between asking you to do a lot for them–like wake up at all hours of the night or clean up their puke–and your threshold for cuteness. They know that if they cuddle you, you are enslaved.
Watch out lady with the fake baby. Watch out.
