My Biggest Reasons for Smiling
I knew exactly what I wanted this Mother’s Day…way before the day was here. New photos of my biggest reasons for smiling and getting out of bed every morning. Last weekend I set up my portable studio and surprised the kids with an unplanned shoot of them-for me. Hehehehehehe…I know how mean I am. They pretty much fully cooperated-if you don’t count in that Colton clowned around & made me a tiny bit bonkers. I had these printed and am so happy because they came out looking so great in print!
The greatest gift I’ve EVER recieved in my life was being blessed with two special kids to mother & cherish. Aren’t they precious?
Looking so grown up.

Brittany-age 16 (ouch)
Colton-age 12 (ouch, 13 is only 4 months away)
For kicks we through the dogs into the mix…Dazie is scared of my camera so it was amazing that she looked over right when I took this. Zelda was scared to sit on the backdrop b/c normally I would be telling her to stay off of it. This time I kept putting her on it and she would freak out and try to get off of it. I imagine I confused her quite a bit.

~take note of Colton’s collar in this photo and then again in the next one~
See what damage Zelda caused Colton’s collar? That’s from struggling to keep her seated.
Random question for you…does a mother’s job end when her children turn 18? or any parent for that matter?
I think it never ends. I believe lessons in life can be taught at any age and sometimes has greater impact to an individual when it comes from their parent. I know some people take on the “friend” role to their children once their children become adults. Does the parent role really take a backseat because of a number like age eighteen? Or does it happen when your child graduates from college? Is it when they move out of the house & make their own family?
What are your thoughts? I’m very curious.
Have a happy Sunday! Show a mom some love!!! 🙂
