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.

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?

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.

I do love the way you have framed this specific situation plus it really does provide me some fodder for thought. However, through just what I have experienced, I only trust when other feed-back pile on that individuals remain on issue and don’t embark upon a soap box associated with some other news of the day. Yet, thank you for this fantastic point and whilst I can not go along with this in totality, I respect the perspective.
