Sharing Allison Tate’s The Mom Stays in the Picture

Super quickly popping in to share Allison Tate’s The Mom Stays in the Picture, from HuffPost’s blog. Get the camera-shy, post-partum mother in your life to read this piece, and then take lots and lots of photos of her with her children.

The best quote from the post:

When I look at pictures of my own mother, I don’t look at cellulite or hair debacles. I just see her — her kind eyes, her open-mouthed, joyful smile, her familiar clothes. That’s the mother I remember. My mother’s body is the vessel that carries all the memories of my childhood. I always loved that her stomach was soft, her skin freckled, her fingers long. I didn’t care that she didn’t look like a model. She was my mama.

Now off to dress the toddler, clean the bathroom, feed the children, meet a deadline…

Made you think? Made you laugh? Made you scream? Tell me.
