Momma Love: Snapshots of Motherhood


As mothers, we give when it’s not easy…


have mastered the art of multitasking,


and are always there for a support, big and small.


We’re rock stars,


of many varieties…


Each and every one of us.


And, though, the job is never easy,


we wouldn’t change it for the world.


Because it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to us.

The above images come from the book Momma Love by photographer Ali Smith. 

If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day Gift, Momma Love would be a beautiful choice! (Don’t believe me? It was named the #1 Mother’s Day Gift 2013 by The New York Times’ Motherlode blog.)

    WTF? Why is a photo of a topless woman the feedly thumbnail for this article? Did some misguided individual at scary mommy pick that thumbnail, or is it random? Either way, I hate seeing that chick’s boob and creepy stare every time I open my blog feed. I’ve tried, but I can’t get it to go away. I’m all for breastfeeding, but I am so frickin’ NOT the touchy-feely type who needs to see photos of other women’s nips to remember how amazing it is. This picture is just grossing me the fuck out. Get it off my feed or I’ll have to unsubscrible to scary mommy.

    I really loved the photos. I probably would have gotten a better view of them if they weren’t covered in ads. Did anyone else have a problem getting the ads to close? It was kind of annoying. (Note: I am not against making money as a blogger, but this was problematic for viewing.)
