I was not planning on entering a photo on I Heart Faces this week.
I love this week's challenge but I did not have a photo in mind.
Then I stumbled across this photo...
I took it a couple of weeks ago when Ethan and I were playing around with my camera.
He was taking pictures of himself in our floor length mirrors.
After playing for about 20 minutes, and taking about 100 photos, I had told him it was time to stop and he was thoroughly disappointed.
So I picked him up and held him for a minute and reassured him we had another fun activity planned right around the corner.
I happened to snap this photo on a whim.
It's not the most glamorous picture ever taken.
My hair is a mess, the closet door is open, the sheets on my bed are not straight, I look pregnant, but to me it is the definition of motherhood.
I little frazzled, not perfect, but stopping everything to comfort your little one.
