When I close my eyes and ponder the word parenting, a flood of images rotates through my mind: images of smiles, messes, cuddles, cuteness, hugs, and holidays. All things that define parenting in my book.
Defining parenting in one picture is a challenge. There are the funny moments, the meaningful moments and the nostalgic moments. We asked Babble writers, other parenting bloggers and a few pals to see if they could define parenting – for them – in one single image. And they did it. They shared with us photos that were sweet, silly, and sentimental and all of them…wonderful.
