Every year around Mother's Day, I like to challenge moms to #PutMomInthePhoto for a period of two weeks. I know we all think it's our responsibility to document, but when our kids are older and look back through their family photos, the person behind the camera doesn't even seem like they were there. For added incentive, I am giving away fourteen $100 gift cards to @CVSpharmacy; one a day to a mom who posts a photo of herself with her kids using the #PutMominthePhoto hashtag. You must tag and follow both @mommyshorts and @CVSpharmacy to win. CVS Photo is where I created the album pictured which includes almost every photo I could dig up of me with my kids. More about the album on my blog today. Link in bio.

FYI, this is how parents get around NYC. When I'm behind them with my umbrella, we take over the whole sidewalk. Sorry fellow Manhattanites!
juleskitty23 : Love my Boston life, I don't think I could ever live in Manhattan though
genybeaudoin : And Montréal!
ariel_the_little_mermaid22 : πŸ’—πŸ’œ
emile_baker : Same here! We're in Boston but have the vista with the kick board. How do you like the Cruz on the bumps of the sidewalk? Been thinking about changing to the lighter model but worried about our darn cobblestones everywhere! Lol

There is no place more competitive than the rope ladder in Washington Square Park. Mazzy has mastered the top but is still working on getting across the bottom. It's tough to do with bigger faster kids on your tail!
lifesajuggle : Love this pic!! And love D.C.
_helenmw : Love the focus! ❀️
cooperjam21 : Nice to see competitive spirit encouraged!
godzollie : I want this for me and Ollie

Guys, writing a book is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. It's written and almost fully laid out (this is the actual dummy book with the pages on the floor underneath!) but now I am going through the very tough process of sourcing photos, which have been submitted to my blog over the past 6 years. Even my own photos are hard to find! Nothing will be used without a signed photo release so if you see a message from @mommyshorts or @annienichtern, please respond asap! I've also been asking for specific photo themes on my facebook page (link in bio) and you can use #mommyshortsbook to hashtag any of your photos that have been featured on my blog or @averageparentproblems in the past that you would like considered. You can also use the hashtag if you have a particularly funny parenting photo you think deserves to be in print. Thank you all for following me through this. It's been hard to keep everything up and complete the book at the same time. I can't wait to reveal the cover, the title, etc. etc. If all goes as planned, it should come out in September!

This is Mazzy's most recent drawing of me. I think she really nailed the zombie-like exhaustion. I’m surrounded by hearts though, so I might be tired, but at least I’m loved. This month, in honor of Mother’s Day, I’m launching a #refreshinglyhonest drawing contest in partnership with Honest Tea. Post portraits your kids drew of you to #refreshinglyhonest tagging @mommyshorts and @honesttea. I'll be selecting one drawing a day for two weeks (that's 14 winners total) to win a month supply of Honest Tea and posting my favorites on the blog! You must follow both @mommyshorts and @honesttea to win. All details on the blog. Link in bio.
