This past week a number of you joined in on the Instagram baby photo challenge that I proposed and it was so much fun!
All week long I looked forward to sharing in the real-life moments you experienced with your little ones and I know that many of you felt the same. I received many comments and e-mails from people who found the challenge to be a source of encouragement for them, because they thought everyone else had it all together and they felt better knowing that we all have our ups, downs, joys and struggles.
It seems like the #parentingforreal hashtag really caught on and gave us all a bit of solidarity in parenting which is most definitely a good thing.
And now, here are my top 25 favorite photos from the challenge….
Thank you all for joining in on this photo challenge! I hope to see more #parentingforreal moments from time to time even though the challenge is over, because I know when I’m having a bad day and feeling like I’m doing a crappy job at parenting, I’ll be heading over for a peek at that hashtag.
Make sure to check out more photos from the mamas from this challenge!
