Real Mom’s

So about a year ago, I began working on a photo series entitled, “Real Mom’s“.
The idea was to capture photo’s of Mom’s holding a sheet of paper, with desperate acts of motherhood they’ve resorted to in order to either get a little “Me Time“, get an idea through their kids’ head or…you get the picture.

I fell away from it shortly after Mother’s Day, and have decided I’ve just got to get it finished for Mother’s Day this year, but this time with help from you.

My main goal as a blogger, is to bust open the stereotypes behind being a mother. We aren’t just Mom’s! We’re wives/girlfriends, daughters, sisters, friends, neighbors and most importantly we are individuals! We are not motherhood just because we happen to be mothers. We’re human, and we just friggin’ crack sometimes!

I am asking every Mom, Grandma, Aunt, Big Sister… Any woman who cares for a child, to please write your “Mom-ent” on a piece of paper, take a photo, and send it in to me at

I think together, we have the potential to really share something great, that will help others realize they aren’t alone. And things happen to the best of us.

Here are a couple I captured last year:
This is Ambrosia, a mother of 3 boys. Bless her sweet heart, this girl has patience!

And this may be obvious by the content of her sign, but this is my best friend and soul sister, Alyssa. She is a mother of a 5 year old boy.

Again all you have to do is :
-Write in short, about the time you had “a moment” and parented under pressure
-Take a picture and email it to me at
-Don’t forget to include your name and how many children you have or care for!

I’m hoping to see my inbox overflowing with these, but who knows, so SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!

      1. When my boys were toddlers they got horrific colds. Their pediatrician had me try several things then ordered hot toddies for both. It worked like a charm. Of course they were toddler size toddies. I gave one to my granddaughter when she had a wicked bad cold when she was visiting. But I never tried using booze to get them to sleep. They were always mean little drunks.
