It wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without my annual attempt at a keepsake photo, and I’m pleased to announce that this year’s results were as stunning as ever. So many treasured images to choose from, it’s nearly impossible to know which one I should have framed. Please, enjoy just a few of the 227 images we captured today, each and every one an invaluable memento of motherhood.

5_face
Riley: Uggh I just woke up someone give me a fucking cigarette oh god what happened last night
Dylan: IF I LOOK AT THE CAMERA IT WILL STEAL MY SOUL

Dylan: …
Riley: WASSUP LADDIEES
Dylan: ….
Riley: HOW YOU DOIN?
Dylan: …
Riley: AYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Dylan: I had a kitty once.
Dylan: …
Dylan: She’s dead now.

2_eyes
Riley: Ohmagah this is like sooooo lame.
Dylan: I … I can see air molecules.

7_gah
Me: *Blink*
Riley: *Blink*
Dylan: Now. Now I strike.

3_fart
Me: Nice.
Riley: What? I had beans earlier.

4_noneck
Dylan: Okay, so, that’s fucked up. The longer you look at Riley the more it looks like someone Photoshopped his head onto his body. Does anyone else see this? Hello?

1_donk
Riley: Hey, no way, I actually look pretty good here.
Me: Yeah, I’m not that bad eith—
Dylan: HEE HAW! HEE HAW! HEEEEEE HAWWWWWWWW!

I hope you and yours had an wonderful Mother’s Day. Despite—or maybe thanks in part to—the photographic evidence, mine was an absolute joy.

Ditto on the hair, and where’d you get that dress?

I hear Dylan hee-hawing like Sam Wainwright in It’s A Wonderful Life.

You look fabulous, don’t worry about the kids, it’s just more material to be able to torture them with later ;) (As a former athlete, I feel totally comfortable telling you you have rockin’ calf muscles!)

Those are great! And it’s cracking me up that Riley looks like Unknown Hinson in number 2. Good stuff.

This made me laugh out loud. Also, while I was busy reading and laughing out loud, my toddler ate about a quarter of a crayon wrapper. I win at motherhood.

The scene is familiar. My boys are slightly older and now we only take one picture. Maybe at their weddings I’ll get a decent picture of us.

I have to agree, you look great!
We bribe the boys with candy then the person taking the photos tells knock knock and fart jokes. I may be LAME but I look up new jokes ahead of time to get the boys to laugh.

Totally worth the lameness as this year they are actually both looking at the camera with semi-smiles on their faces!

OMG, how beautiful are YOU! You look spectacular, and really, isn’t that all that matters? ;-) Kidding, of course…mostly.

Also, that was HILARIOUS. You captioned those so well, it’s hard for me to choose which is my favorite.

In the second one, Dylan looks like Casper the friendly ghost. It’s like a screwed up angel/demon on your shoulders – Jack Nicholson eyebrows on one side, Casper on the other.

Hilarious. I’m with everyone else: who wants a “perfect” picture? These clearly tell the TRUTH.

Also, damn woman, those are some Triplets of Belleville calves! You are amazing.

it has officially been a year since I have been reading you – and you still make me smile – I love that you try every time and the wild ways of the kids as they try to out do you….

Oh god, I love your Mother’s Day posts! I think it’d be awesome to have a photo of them, in sequence, down the hallway so that the evidence is handy when you need to blackmail your sons later!

Between the actual photos and the captions I am fucking DYING at my desk, doing that delightful laugh-cry-stifle thing. These are way more awesome than any “perfect” photo where everyone is looking in the same direction smiling.

OMG, that is so damn hilarious! I seriously have tears in my eyes, trying not to laugh at work. Totally awesome. Riley totally looks like Jack Nicholson in picture #2.
