The Good Mother

I am a good mother. I love my children. I take good care of them. I photograph them so they will have fond memories of their childhood.

I follow them around and snap pictures of them when they play, and when they pretend to fall off their bikes.

I capture their faces when they are trying to fake they are in unbearable pain from such a devastating bicycle accident.

And then I get lucky...

It's not every day I have my camera in hand when an 'unfaked' biking accident takes place just seconds after a pretend one.

One just horrible enough to draw blood. But not too horrible to scar her for life. She will have no visual reminders on her knee of that fateful day.

If it weren't for her good mother, the memory of knee vs. gravel would quickly fade. Isn't she lucky? Ah, what fond memories of childhood my sweet girl will have, thanks to her good mother.


  1. Oh NO ---- that is the saddest face ever. Hope it is all better now.

  2. On poor Maiden! Looking so smiley..then BAM..the tears:(

  3. That's hilarious! I am so glad that you are such a good mother and captured it all for us!

  4. Good Mama, good sweet camera toting Mama.
    Poor baby, knee scrapes hurt!
