Motherhood Photo

5 Minutes for mom is hosting a Photo Contest about motherhood for mother's day. We're to post a photo that says Motherhood to us.

I don't even know which one to start with. Pictures of my kids scream Mother to me. They are my kids after all. Then when I see pictures of others children I think Mother's too. Kids. They come from somewhere. They all mean something to someone. Motherhood changed my life. I don't look at things the same anymore (do any of us). I see a hurt or sad child my heart breaks. I read a moving story about a child and their mother I tear up. My baby sister finds out she is having a baby. I wonder at it all. So I submit this photo of my kids together. They are all smiling for once together. Aren't they sweet. The boys look so grown up and my daughter - oh my daughter. We almost didn't have her here with us. She's so fiesty and so sweet. These kids are my world. Even when I want to run away from home.

Cute picture! I bet they can be a handful though when they're not smiling for the camera. :)
