LINK TITLE





For the past few weeks we've tried out having a prompt IF and only IF you would like to use it.


This week the prompt is: MOTHERHOOD. Let's see it in all its beautiful forms.

I've posted this picture before. I'm posting it again because it screams motherhood to me. I have all of my babies with me, connected, and we are heading towards one common goal.


That's kind of what motherhood is to me. Loving up my babies and trying to help lead them in the right direction. I pray I'm doing a decent job.

For Next WEEK, The prompt is:

Sleeping. Kids sleeping.......you sleeping. Your dog sleeping. Totally up to you. :)

PLEASE let me know (with an asterik by your name or blog title) if your post is about motherhood. If it is, and you are the winning Wordful Wednesday entry, you'll recieve TWO things. First, a feature on Eliza's blog with your winning entry, AND secondly, a set of aden + anais Zoo Muslin swaddling blankets (pictured below).

Great picture!

Genny said...

What a sweet photo, Angie.

I had to laugh when I saw the prompt of motherhood (I hadn't seen it until today), because my post is actually very much about motherhood...the crazy side of it! The pet dramas never end in this house! lol :)

Milk and Honey Mommy said...

Angie,

In a weird way, my picture is a reflection of motherhood. Right now it is the only one I have of my three children and me. They walk in my shadow as I teach them about life and I hope to follow them like a shadow always protecting them.

Milk and Honey Mommy said...

Angie,

Oops! The picture of you and your children is just lovely. It's one of those that I'm sure not only you, but your children too, will appreciate (if not now) definitely when they grow older.

Buckeroomama said...

I love your photo!! It totally says "motherhood" ...perfect. :)

Jenni Jiggety said...

My motherhood posting is up on T Rex Mom and Dad Tales.

Happy WW!

Brimful Curiosities said...

Your picture and theme makes me smile. What an excellent shot portraying Motherhood.

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

That is just beautiful! Five children, wow. And redheads, oh... I'm a sucker for redheads. I just might have to do the sleeping-baby thing next week.

Kasey@ All Things Mamma said...

I love, love, LOVE this photo!
All those redheads too! I have two of my own, so I'm kinda partial.

I'm sorry I missed the prompt. I hope I do remember next week!

Robin said...

Mine's wordLESS, not wordful, but it couldn't be more about motherhood if it tried - come see, it's not at all what you'd think ;-).

Jennifer said...

FIVE kids, Angie! You have FIVE kids! Lady, you are my hero. I barely hanging by a thread with ONE. *sigh* I need pointers, ASAP! ;-)

What a lovely picture of you and the kids. It has been a while since I last took a photo together with mine. Happy WW

4 Lettre Words said...

Lovely photo!

I forgot about the theme, once again. Tho, it might have been funny if I did put an asterik, considering my photo! :o)

Susie said...

My post isn't about motherhood per se but, we do have to feed our children. Finding new recipes is one way I nurish our family:-)

Whimsical Creations said...

Beautiful photo! Definitely screams motherhood.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

That is one of my absolute favorite shots of you and your kids.

Priceless.

:)

You could post that picture every week and I would still smile every time I saw it!!

Live.Love.Eat said...

I agree with Scary Mommy. I remember that photo like it was yesterday. Love it.

Lolli said...

I love that picture. Love it. It definitely speaks volumes about motherhood. No words needed. :)

Courtney said...

Such a beautiful picture! Motherhood is the best thing and nothing can give you that gooey feeling like the love of your kids!

Octamom said...

I couldn't decide if my post qualified as a motherhood post or not--although I do think only a mother would be willing to spend hours pulling nits out of her kids' hair...

Blessings!

Dee said...

I LOVE that picture!!

Patois said...

Every time I see that picture, I love it.

Mama Zen said...

I love how it is so simple...yet so very meaningful. It's just beautiful!

Sarah said...

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

That is a beautiful photo... all of you holding hands and walking together.

Postcards from Wildwood said...

Beautiful photo of you and your children, Angie. I recognise it as being from the same photoshoot as the one in your sidebar ... that is, unless you always all wear denim and white! And yes, I agree with you about motherhood and my post says something not too dissimilar.
Janice.

Kekibird said...

That's a gorgeous picture. I could make mine into a post about motherhood but I'll let it speak for itself.

Michelle said...

You are going to have to retake that picture in a few years to show the kids growth. How fun it would be to compare the years!

shopannies said...

just a beautiful picture love all the white as helps to stand for the innocent relationship amongst the mother and child

Stefany said...

I forgot about the prompt. :(

That is a beautiful picture!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Love the motherhood photo. I played WW today but totally missed the prompt... No kids, just ducks!

Twincere said...

I love your photo, its so naturally speaking!

Heather of the EO said...

I totally forgot the asterik. Of course I did, my brain is full, I'm a mother! :)

LOVE your picture and the words you used to describe it.

Amethyst Moon said...

Great picture!

Peaches said...

I absolutely adore photographs from the back. I got one of my three kids strolling down the beach this summer. Its my *fave*.

kisatrtle said...

I forgot to put an * by my name. Oh well. Love your pic!

Amy said...

This is a cute post. I just got back into town. I hope to join in next week..

Momlissa said...

I love photos taken from behind. I have a whole series of them with my kids. So much can be relayed from that angle. Beautiful!

Eleana said...

That is a beautiful picture!

Lula! said...

Y'all are so beautiful.

p.s. I love the "connection" in this picture. And you are a very connected Mommy. With really fabulous hair. Did you catch me staring at it this past weekend? In between praying for you, that is...

parentingBYdummies said...

And, after meeting you in Vegas I know that not only are you an awesome lady, you are probably a REALLY awesome mama too!

SandyCarlson said...

As a good friend says, "Nobody goes to college in diapers. They catch on."

Sera said...

Finally getting time to come back and comment on your picture. The baby's sleeping, the husband's at karate - such a lovely time of night. :)

I think all the pictures you've shown from this photo shoot have just been stunning - you have one heck of a photographer.

Was this a candid shot? I love it. I see so much strength in you in this picture. It's such a beautiful shot, and I hope it's somewhere on your wall at home.

Steph at Problem Solvin' Mom said...

I absolutely love that picture, it's fabulous!

Kacey R. said...

Girl, I just posted - better late than never right? You had me thinking on this one sista! ;D

Laura said...

Love your picture. I actually joined in. I love the idea of you adding a prompt as it inspired me to revisit a memory and write about something I hadn't thought about in a while. It made wordful Wednesday a whole new thing. Great idea!

Grand Pooba said...

Oh my gosh I LOVE that photo!

Adventure Mom Janna said...

I skipped the opportunity to share a warm and fuzzy photo and gave reality instead -messes!

Hope I'm not too late:)

Allison said...

Such a beautiful family! Happy WW.
