We are suffering from a big case of "The shoemaker's children have no shoes" over here. I probably have hundreds of "favorite" pictures of my kiddos...all in my computer.
They really belong on my walls!!! Big beautiful images that will make me smile and remember just how precious these little critters are (and how fast they are growing).
These are literally the only pictures I have of my kids in my house (other than some sports magnets on the side of the fridge).
Total facepalm...the fourth baby isn't even in there. Say it...PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH LADY!!
I know, I know! I am going to pick out photos and order large canvases this week. I'm going to do it, and you are going to hold me accountable.
I can't wait to show you how they come out.
Added bonus: I was listening to a podcast and they were talking about how seeing photos of themselves and their families around the house is really good for a child's self-esteem.
When my kiddos are having a bad day, I want them to be able to come home and look around and see pictures of what is really important. US! Remember the good times, smile ant the silly moments, and feel the LOVE.
If you are up for a little extra reading, this post talks a little more about the psychology behind how family portraits can help boost your child's self-esteem, and why printing those photos and getting them up on your walls is so important!
Your family is a work of art, and artwork should be displayed!
