Mom n' Me Monday-{All about Feet}

mom n me jpeg

Mom n' Me Monday was created in an attempt to make myself get in the picture with my kiddos. When my kids are grown, I don't want to look through my photos only to find that I am not in any of them! So, I'm on a mission to "capture" these memories.

Sunday evening came crashing down and I realized I had no Mom n' Me pictures to share.
Shocking, I know.
As much as I begged and face was not cooperating.
It had nothing to do with the bad hair day I was experiencing.
And the 10 pound bags under my eyes were screaming to have their picture taken.
However, my face was having none of it.
It just said "NO".
And so I settled for the next best thing.
Mom n' me feet, that is.
I didn't want my daughter to grow up and look back on our time together, only to find she had no pictures of our feet.
That would be tragic.
Don't you think?
Foot hug...anyone??

If you don't like feet.
I'm sorry.

But I enjoy feet.
They are good for walking, skipping, and jumping...
and squeezing mud.
They take you where you want to go.
Oh, those beautiful, hard working feet.
They carry the load!
Especially when your face isn't willing to!

And for those of you who read Friday's Letter of Intent, I would like to say that blogger did absolutely nothing for me in regards to my missing menu bar.  Of course, I never actually contacted them.  I did slave over a new menubar.  Yes, my fingers bled yet again. But this time I saved a copy of the code.  See, I learn from my mistakes.


I can't wait to see your pictures. You can grab the code under the button below and paste it into the body of your post. Then add your link into Linky tools below.

To use Linky tools, be sure to link your Mom n' Me Monday post, not your main blog url.

To do this, go to your blog. Click on the title of your Mom n' Me Monday post. The url in your browser window will become a direct link to that post. Copy that url and paste it into the Linky tools window, along with your name, or your blog's name.

If you don't want to grab the Mom n' Me button, just link back to the Peanut Gallery so other's can join in if that's what their little heart's desire :)!

You are too funny! I too love pics of feet. Maybe not my long, skinny ones but the kids have adorable feet. ;-) Happy Memorial Day!

He & Me + 3 said...

So cute. I do not have a feet issue. I think your feet and painted toes are perfect. lOve these shots.

Have a beautiful Memorial Day!

Awesome pictures! What a great idea...

Simply Cintia said...

I love, love, LOVE the post! I've been working taking successful feet pics but the baby won't be still. We'll get there :)

Sonora said...

I love this. It is such a creative spin on Mom n Me Monday. My favorites is the one with the hearts and the one with your feet crossed right about it. So cute!

Heather said...

Beautiful pictures!! So creative and I especially like the hand/heart one. :)

Arizona Mamma said...

I copied you today. I didn't read your post until after I did mine, but I did see the feet pictures, and decided to tag along with some of my own. Yours, of course, are WAY WAY better. I love them.

You want to know the craziest thing? Your feet are so similar! Hers look like they could have been passed down from you!

I love this post...and I hope you don't mind my lack or originality today. At least I didn't hijack your words too ;)

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

Feet pictures! Great idea - I love it! Reminds me that I need to paint my toenails and resume the daily lotion treatment! My feet are ugly!

Natalie said...

LOVE the foot hug!! I just got a pedicure, so maybe I'll take a picture now while they look good ;)

Love those photos! Kiddie feet especially are absolutely delicious and I can't get enough of little girls with toenail polish (can you tell I'm surrounded by BOYS? :)

Happy Memorial Day!

Leanne said...

Ok - I am absolutely loving these photos! Just wonderful. They say SO much. Thank you for sharing them.

Joey @ Big Teeth and Clouds said...

I thought I was just morbid that I keep making sure I have photographic evidence of me on vacations and stuff. That's the #1 reason I'm ever in pictures - just to say mommy was here!

I love the foot picture idea - beautiful shots!

Krystyn said...

Those piggy shots are absolutely precious! I think I might have to borrow this idea!

3LittleMonkeys said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE these pictures!!!! They are so warm, natural, and sweet!!! I wish I could get my husband to get behind the camera and capture some shots of me and the kids so I could participate.
