Happy mother’s day to all your wonderful moms! Yesterday my mom and grandma came over in the morning. When my mom called her mom, “mom” my four year old daughter looks confused. “She’s not mommy!” she exclaimed. I went over to her and said, “I’m your mommy.” Then I went to my mom and told her that Grandma is my mom. Finally my mom went to Gram and said, “This is my mom.” Four generations of women.
While we get together for holidays and events, it’s not often we have a small gathering of us. I almost said “calm” gathering, but with my three energetic kids. it was anything but calm. My mom had come over with bagels, fruit and muffins. We were getting the kids all something to drink, seeing what they wanted. My grandma was looking around and said she wasn’t used to hectic mornings anymore. She raised four girls and many foster children as well. I’m sure she had her share of hectic mornings, but I have a feeling my children are more boisterous than hers were. At one point she told my mom she was thinking of taking her hearing aid out! I understand grandma. I wish I could turn the volume down too 🙂
Four Generations of Women : Happy Mother’s Day!
Since we were all together and were explaining to Piper about the generations, we thought it would be fun to take a “four generations of women” photo. I’m sure my boys were happy to not be included as all they wanted to do was play video games. Gram got a lesson on Lego Dimensions from them.
We headed down to my studio where I set the tripod up. One of my favorite features on my camera is the interval timer that is built into my camera. I set up the interval and how many photos I want it to take in a row. Then I press start and run into the frame. Easy, right? Well after getting over 100 images, the hard part is seeing if there is ONE usable image. We had a LOT of outtakes that are pretty funny. Luckily we were able to capture one and I am absolutely in love with it!
